Risk and Protection ofMedical Information Systems
AbstractThe delivery of healthcare to patients („fibre to the home“) increasingly relies on Medical Information System (MedIS). MedIS, like other IT-systems, are vulnerable to malware attacks. MedIS owners and operators have a special responsibility to shield their systems from mali-cious attacks. These efforts involve technology and procedures that need to be considered during the whole product life cycle. MedIS presents additional challenges not usually present in the office IT environment. Medical data must be better protected because it is needed to protect the health of patients.
