NEMECYS’ kick off meeting was a success!

Earlier this month, the NEMECYS (NEw MEdical CYbersecurity assessment and design Solutions) kick off meeting was successfully completed in Trondheim, Norway. The three-year project will help practitioners, such as cybersecurity communities, medical devices (MD) manufacturers, connected medical devices (CMD) scenario system integrators and scenario operators (e.g. health care providers), to improve cybersecurity by design for connected medical and diagnostic devices.

In specific, NEMECYS will help practitioners to comply with MD regulations, apply proportionate MD cybersecurity, and also build in cybersecurity by design for both MDs and the connected scenarios they operate in, by providing:

  • Recommendations for best practice and guidelines for medical device cybersecurity by design, along with compliance assurance tooling
  • A risk-benefit scheme to address cybersecurity risk balanced with clinical benefit
  • A set of specific tools to address medical device cybersecurity by design and their deployment in connected scenarios
