False Part 2: FDA does not allow software security patches

[Note the sarcasm in my title.  In fact, FDA guidelines promote keeping COTS software up-to-date.]

Hurricane Sandy gave me to opportunity to try out some drawing programs while stranded in Minneapolis.  Here's my artistic interpretation to expand upon my earlier post to encourage regular cybersecurity patches for medical devices that depend on COTS software like Windows XP.  You can download the PDF poster here.  Consider posting near your hospital CIO's office.  This poster has been verified and validated by smart engineers from the medical device manufacturing community (they liked it, so I am sharing it).

  1. It surprises me that they don't allow this as it would enhance security.
