Israel headquartered Cybellum, the leading provider of the Product Security Platform has joined Japan's Medical Information Sharing and Analysis Centre (M-ISAC Japan).

Cybellum's membership in the organisation will allow it to participate in research projects that can help shape the future of medical device cybersecurity. The Japanese government is committed to maintaining the highest cybersecurity standards, and this organisation brings together nearly 200 member organisations that share information on real-time threats. This shared intelligence can be used to create situational awareness, inform risk-based decision-making, and mitigate threats. By sharing information, this organisation helps to increase the resilience of global healthcare and public health critical infrastructure.

The Product Security Platform by Cybellum empowers medical Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers to automatically and efficiently identify, handle, and reduce vulnerabilities on a large scale. Through this platform, product security teams can easily compile and manage SBOMs, validate compliance, and manage vulnerabilities in a unified manner. As a result, medical OEMs and suppliers can swiftly adhere to medical cybersecurity regulations, significantly reducing risks with greater speed and effectiveness than ever before.

"As medical devices have become more complex and connected, they have become a new target for hackers," said David Leichner, Chief Marketing Officer, Cybellum. "These hackers may seek to harm patients, damage brands, or make financial gain. Our partnership with M-ISAC will help us to share information and collaborate with other organisations in Japan to continue to protect patients and healthcare delivery organisations around the globe from cyberattacks."
