Medical Device Threat Modeling with Templates

Modern medical Devices contain many software components and are growing exponentially in complexity. The medical devices environment has typically struggled to threat model while the practice has become standard procedure for software systems. To help solve the problem for our engineering teams, we created a threat model template that combines the software and medical device specific threat modeling specifics together. We will demonstrate our creation and show how it’s lessons learned potentially apply to other IoT domains.
