Anyone who thought that BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) was facing extinction with the demise of its mobile phones ought to think again. The company is now focusing on software over hardware, and counts healthcare systems among its top customers.
One area where the group hopes to make an impact is medical device cybersecurity, which has come under an unusually bright spotlight this year. David Kleidermacher, BlackBerry’s chief security officer, tells EP Vantage that a standard he helped develop could improve the security of products from insulin pumps to implanted cardiac devices. “We try to hack into the device. We try to find the vulnerabilities,” he says.
