Abbott is committed to protecting against potential vulnerabilities that could affect the integrity and security of our products and systems or the privacy of our patients and customers. The threat of cyberattacks to medical devices and other systems is constantly evolving. In response, we have proactively established a coordinated product disclosure program that is focused on reducing the cybersecurity risks from new and emerging threats, enabling us to continuously improve the security of our products.
We recognize the importance of incorporating cybersecurity considerations throughout our product development process. Our cross-functional Product Security Working Group includes representatives from product development, information security, information technology, and quality assurance. This working group functions as the steering committee for the program and helps us to further incorporate cybersecurity considerations across various aspects of the business, the product lifecycle, and our Quality Management System, including design controls and risk management.
We recognize the need to collaborate and partner with security researchers, patients and our customers to understand new vulnerabilities that may be present in our products.
The scope of our cybersecurity coordinated product disclosure reporting process includes Medical Devices, Software as a Medical Device, and Mobile Medical Applications. It is not intended to provide technical support information on our products or for reporting Adverse Events or Product Quality Complaints.
If you have identified a potential security vulnerability or privacy issue with our products, please contact us by sending an email (in English) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that you please encrypt your email by utilizing our PGP Public key to ensure secure communications with Abbott.
