Courtney Young to Speak at the Medical Device Cybersecurity Workshop

October 17, 2017 - October 18, 2017

Goodwin Law in Boston, MA

Cybersecurity for medical devices is mandatory.  FDA requires cybersecurity precautions both pre- and post-market and in remediation of legacy products.  Hospitals factor cybersecurity into purchasing decisions.  A lack of security may compromise your device’s performance and patient safety, and provide a point of entry to hospital HIT systems and other connected devices.

This two-day workshop provides thorough training in medical device cybersecurity risks, best practices for secure product design, validation and testing, postmarket surveillance, and procedures for incident response.  Small breakout sessions provide an opportunity for discussion of your company’s particular challenges and concerns.
