Medical Device Vulnerability Intelligence Program for Evaluation and Response (MD-VIPER)
Welcome to the Medical Device Vulnerability Intelligence Program for Evaluation and Response (MD-VIPER), a program of the Medical Device Security Information Sharing Council (MDSISC) serving as the Medical Device ISAO under the National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (NH-ISAC) and the Medical Device Innovation, Safety & Security (MDISS) Consortium. MD-VIPER was created through an operational partnership & MOU between the FDA, NH-ISAC and MDISS. The website is a new, secure, narrowly-scoped public health initiative designed to meet the FDA Postmarket regulatory guidance for cybersecurity vulnerability disclosure and reporting. The web services provide a means for all stakeholders in the medical device community to learn and mature efficient and value-added risk assessment, vulnerability information sharing, and surveillance components of a comprehensive ISAO. Other medical device cybersecurity data sharing initiatives and ties to data streams including the DHS ICS-CERT are components of other related controlled pilots that are underway.
The MD-VIPER program goals are to: (1) provide a medical device vulnerability sharing, evaluation, and response service; (2) support FDA’s Postmarket Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices final guidance; (3) create an open community of medical device cybersecurity stakeholders (manufacturers, healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs), independent security researchers, regulatory agencies, etc.) to promote a consensus & consistency of vulnerability reporting and information sharing approach and process; (4) contribute significantly to medical device cybersecurity education; and (5) foster situational awareness of medical device cybersecurity threats, best practices and mitigation strategies.
