Alpine Security has provided medical device cybersecurity assessment and testing service since 2016 and has continued to refine their medical device assessment and penetration testing capabilities. Prior to COVID-19, Alpine Security's cybersecurity engineers traveled onsite to medical device manufacturing facilities to provide testing onsite, at client facilities. Due to safety and travel limitations associated with COVID-19, Alpine Security has converted one of their training classrooms to a medical device testing facility. Clients now ship their medical devices to Alpine Security's facility for cybersecurity assessment and testing.
Alpine Security medical device manufacturing clients are thrilled with this new approach because it provides an alternative for testing during COVID-19, saves on travel costs, and offers more flexibility with testing timelines.
Alpine Security’s medical device testing framework references the following standards:
- The Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual
- U.S. NIST SP 800-115: Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment
- FDA Premarket Notification 510(k)
- FDA Content of Premarket Submissions for Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices (2018 Draft)
- EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR)
- UL 2900 set of standards (UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program)
