Bradley Merrill Thompson, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in POLITICO Morning eHealth, in “Cybersecurity Asks: More on FDA,” by Darius Tahir.

Following is an excerpt:

More on FDA: Epstein, Becker & Green lawyer Brad Thompson noted that, “having FDA involved would give hospitals greater assurance,” but that their authority was limited to safety-and-efficacy issues. That is, they can only ensure that devices are secure insofar as cybersecurity flaws impact the device’s performance. Other dimensions of security aren’t under agency purview.
