Robert Dalrymple, chief information security officer at the Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY, says a significant problem for hospitals is trying to build the cost of medical device cybersecurity maintenance into their budgets. See what he told US lawmakers here.

"Our lawmakers can help by creating laws that will both incentivize application, software and hardware vendors to work toward a framework that incorporates good security principles throughout their product development life cycle (e.g., audit, patching and upgrade capabilities); and impose penalties for noncompliance.
