Secure supply chain from CHERRY

Sources of supply

To ensure the greatest possible protection of patient data right from the start, there is also a corresponding "secure supply chain" for the telematics infrastructure. In simplified terms, this consists of three sections: CHERRY, as a manufacturer of products for the TI, has increased security requirements for the production environment and must record and document all security-relevant data.

The intermediate trade must ensure that devices for the TI are safely protected by structural and organizational measures, including during transport. In addition to specially trained personnel, this also includes an extended process for incoming and outgoing goods. During transportation, the service provider also needs specially trained personnel and certifications.

End customers (doctors, hospitals, etc.) must in turn be able to check the devices and cards for integrity and authenticity. This is done by means of security features on the device or card itself, the various stations in the supply chain or specific security features of the manufacturer.
