' Employ Cybersecurity Techniques Against the Threat of Medical Misinformation '


Quote:
' To counteract cyber threats to medical devices and the emerging digital health field, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has begun incorporating "white hat" hacking techniques into its cybersecurity program, launching the #WeHeartHackers challenge to encourage manufacturers to join cybersecurity researchers at the Biohacking Village at DEF CON, the international hacking conference. By adopting the toolsets used by their potential adversaries, it is likely that the FDA has significantly improved the likelihood that internet-connected medical devices will remain safe and resilient for patients by employing countertactics tailored to meet specific threats.'

Isn't hindsight always 20 20 and regulation always after the fact...

You-all didn't read the article. It has nothing to do with regulation. It's about inviting white-hat hackers to combat medical misinformation. Maybe somebody on this forum could participate.
