BD begins new programme for cybersecurity of medical technology

Becton Dickinson (BD) has initiated the Product Security Partnership Programme to encourage alliances in the healthcare industry for improving the cyber security of medical technology and devices.

The programme seeks partnership with government agencies, industry associations, and security researchers.

BD also plans to collaborate with UL to be a part of the UL cybersecurity cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) and to use the firm’s ANSI UL 2900 cybersecurity standard.
