NIST Starts Consumer Labeling Program for IoT Cybersecurity

Over the last several weeks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has taken key steps towards the creation of a consumer labeling program for the cybersecurity of Internet of things (IoT) devices.

President Biden's May 2021 Executive Order (EO) 14028, "Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity," which DWT covered in a prior blog post, directed NIST and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to explore and pilot such a labeling program as part of the EO's push to improve the security of software supply chains. The labeling program, which has been likened to the Energy Star program for energy efficiency, would allow consumers to identify which IoT devices incorporate certain cybersecurity capabilities and have undergone comprehensive testing and assessment. Read More

A new cybersecurity center wants to protect medical devices against hacks

In the decade since, there’s been an explosion in the number of connected medical devices — drug infusion pumps, pacemakers, monitors — that makes the issue even more pressing. There is an average of 10 to 15 internet-connected devices on each hospital bed, security researchers estimate. That exposure is one reason the University of Minnesota set up a new Center for Medical Device Cybersecurity, which launched at the beginning of September in partnership with medical device companies like Medtronic (which made Radcliffe’s pump) and Boston ScientificRead More

Cybersecurity Solutions to Know in 2021: Open Source and Scaling Up

Speed is of the essence in digital defense. As the latest Ponemon Institute Cost of a Data Breach Report makes clear, businesses and agencies that are able to respond to and contain an incident rapidly will save millions over their slower peers. The average total cost of a data breach increased by nearly 10%, the largest increase in nearly a decade. However, groups able to identify and contain a breach in less than 200 days saved an average of $1.26 million compared to those that needed more time. So, the right thing to do is put more cybersecurity solutions in place, right? Read More
