All IT networks that contain at least one medical device as a partial component are called medical IT networks. IEC 80001-1 is aimed at all operators of such networks with the aim of dealing with the security aspects of IT and medical technology.
Risk management over the entire life cycle of the IT network is required by the standard. Starting with the integration up to the separation of the medical device from the network.
By means of a systematic risk analysis, a large number of problem cases can be identified and solved in advance. According to IEC 80001-1, special protection goals must be considered for this risk management and a corresponding risk management file must be prepared.
