(CSE:CYBT) (hereinafter “Cybeats” or “our company”) is pleased to provide further comment on the successful passage of the $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Appropriations Bill. The new bill establishes legal requirements for all medical device manufacturers to ensure their devices meet certain cybersecurity standards, including providing her SBOM to the FDA. .

The omnibus bill requires submission to the FDA of a software bill of materials (SBOM) containing all standard, open source, critical software components for medical devices.Cybit’s SBOM studio provides medical device manufacturers with the ability to efficiently manage vulnerabilities in SBOMs and their software, and provides solutions for exchanging SBOMs with regulatory authorities such as the FDA. Cybeats recently announced a commercial pilot1 We partner with Fortune 500 companies, including medical device manufacturers, who are actively seeking SBOM management solutions in preparation for FDA regulations.

“With our existing agreements with Fortune 500 medical device manufacturers, SBOM Studio addresses the specific needs of the medical device industry as required by the FDA. This new cybersecurity oversight by the FDA will accelerate the transition to using SBOM standards and create a favorable tailwind for SBOM management solutions like Cybeats SBOM Studio. “ Said Cybeats CEO Yoav Raiter said:Organizations now have the daunting need to manage and securely transmit valuable SBOM and software assets to the FDA. This is exactly what the SBOM Studio product does. Our market-ready products anticipate accelerating traction in the medical device market where the requirement to implement SBOM is not an option.

FDA is seeking clear authority to require premarket submissions that include evidence demonstrating assurance that:

  1. Device safety and effectiveness for cybersecurity purposes.

  2. Devices on the market reasonably guarantee the safety of the device. and effectiveness for cybersecurity purposes.

  3. Ensure that devices have the ability to be updated and patched in a timely manner.

  4. Manufacturers providing software bills of materials (SBOMs) in their devices to help users understand which components of their devices are or may be exposed to cyberthreats.

  5. And by disclosing cybersecurity vulnerabilities as they become known, device manufacturers let users know when their devices are vulnerable and provide them with instructions to mitigate the risks.2

Such regulations are specifically aimed at enhancing the security of the software supply chain and the adoption of SBOM, which has led to a growing interest in SBOM worldwide. The 2023 FDA budget includes his $95 million additional funding, including the development of a comprehensive cybersecurity program for medical devices. This will be used to oversee regulations and hire additional staff to develop greater cyber expertise within the equipment program.3

The provisions of the Omnibus Bill provide important guidance for device manufacturers to identify and address post-market software vulnerabilities in their products within 90 days. Additionally, new Her SBOM requirements require vendors to determine if there are any issues with third-party Her components that they utilize in their software. Medical device manufacturers can no longer ignore the risks posed to patients by security risks in the software they use.

Given the increasing use of software in connected medical devices, the cybersecurity provisions included in the 2023 Omnibus represent an important step towards ensuring the safety and security of medical devices. Even well-constructed software can contain highly impactful vulnerabilities that can affect the software’s ability to function properly. And with the widespread use of third-party and open source software, medical device manufacturers may not even be aware of exploits that could impact patient care. .
