Schneier on Security – FDA Recommendations on Medical-Device Cybersecurity

I echo Mr. Schneier’s comments in that a non-binding recommendation has little value and even less influence.  That said, this is a necessary half-step in the right direction.  Human hackability is a real problem that needs and deserves real attention and real solutions.

I am glad to see that St. Jude Medical and others are at least attempting to patch and address vulnerabilities in their products.
