Hacking of Medical Devices

6 August 2011

Some of you might have seen media reports this week about the possibility of insulin pumps being hacked. First, we want to reassure you that there is no cause for alarm. Medtronic takes very seriously the issue of information security of devices. It is an integral part of the very fabric of our product design processes.

Technology is constantly evolving and Medtronic is continually incorporating measures to maintain information security, while ensuring our devices meet their intended purpose of saving and extending lives.

We understand that there are no absolute certainties in information security. However, we also know that being vigilant in reviewing the external security landscape, designing our products with information security in mind and creating rigorous, complex safeguards will help ensure product security.
