VA is conducting market research to investigate alternative approaches and industry solutions to implement a comprehensive scalable solution to secure, monitor, and isolate medical devices and SPS. The intent is to reduce cyber security material weakness without creating an overly complex environment while maximizing the re-use of existing infrastructure and network technologies in order to determine system network readiness.
VA is seeking Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to participate in an internal VA test/demonstration for securing, monitoring and isolating medical devices and SPS.
The intent of the demonstration is to validate the functionality of the system features and gain insight into the current state of technology. An area of concern is the reduction of cyber security material weakness while maximizing the re-use of existing infrastructure. The results of the test/demonstration will be used to support VA in refining the requirement to take advantage of the latest technology. Once VA completes testing, the VA intends to issue a combination RFI/draft Request for Proposal (RFP) which will provide industry an opportunity to provide additional feedback prior to the final RFP.
