Device security by design

In September of 2023, the FDA released new requirements for medical device cybersecurity practices and information to be provided during premarket submissions. The requirements are broken down into four general principles:

Cybersecurity is part of device safety and the quality system regulation quality system regulation

Submissions must demonstrate a “reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness,” which includes software validation and risk management as defined by a strong Secure Product Development Framework (SPDF) that encompasses all phases of a device’s lifecycle.

Premarket submissions should clearly define how the following security objectives are addressed by and integrated into the device design:

  • Authenticity
  • Authorization
  • Availability
  • Confidentiality
  • Secure and timely updatability and patchability

Transparency

Device users should have clear and accessible information about the device’s cybersecurity controls, potential risks, known vulnerabilities, configuration and update instructions, and other pertinent information spanning the device’s entire lifecycle.

Documentation

Cybersecurity design and documentation should scale with the risk level of the device, taking into account the larger system in which the device will be used. Generally, the more connected and integral the device, the stronger and more comprehensive the documentation is expected to be.
