Product security and privacy

BD is committed to providing secure products to our customers given the important benefits they provide to patient health.

Policy statement

We value the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all protected health and personally identifiable information (e.g., PHI, PII) in accordance with all applicable federal and state privacy and security laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. BD has implemented administrative, technical and physical safeguards, to reasonably protect against security incidents or privacy breaches involving a BD product. However, as systems evolve vulnerabilities may be identified and we consider you a partner in this process. If you have any concerns, we ask that you bring them to our attention, and we will investigate and address the issue if necessary, including through responsible disclosure of such issues if they exist.

  • Secure coding practices and analysis
  • Vulnerability scanning and third-party testing
