Safety & Security of Bionic Devices

The military addresses the EID problem because of concern about electronic activation of explosives and interference with communications, and so on. But I haven’t read or seen anything about the need to test and/or shield bionic devices and to protect them from the consequences of accidental or intentional security and safety incidents. Perhaps some work is being done in this area—I certainly hope so.

Not that security and safety software engineers don’t have enough to worry about without piling more issues on them. But here is a field that is just gaining traction, and so it is the right time to introduce security and safety standards for bionics. So how about it?
