The National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued new guidance on securing wireless infusion pumps in hopes of hardening the devices against cyber attacks. The federal agency issued the instructions in collaboration with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), which is a unit within NIST. The NCCoE has designed a plan showing providers how to use standards-based commercially available technology to protect pumps, patient information and drug library dosing limits. Several major vendors collaborated with NIST on the report. They include B.Braun, Baxter, BD, Cisco, Clearwater Compliance, DigiCert, Hospira, Intercede, MDISS, PFP, RAMPARTS, Smiths Medical, Symantec and TD Medical.
