Manufacturers should incorporate cybersecurity into the risk management process for every device that consists of or contains software. Manufacturers are also encouraged to develop and maintain a framework for managing cybersecurity risks throughout their organizations.”

Manufacturers should be able to trace all verification and validation activities back to the device’s design requirements and/or design specifications.”
