Secure Your Medical Devices From the Ground Up

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently released new guidance on cybersecurity for medical devices. This presentation will provide an overview of this guidance and review what is required for 510(k) submissions. We will also discuss the upcoming European Union (EU) cybersecurity regulations and how they compare to the FDA guidance.

This webinar with ICS and partner RTI, the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, will focus on threat modeling and cybersecurity risk assessments in light of the new guidance, and how these activities impact design requirements for medical devices. You will learn common pitfalls and mistakes to avoid when establishing organizational best practices in cybersecurity.

We will also discuss the challenges to securing data in motion for connected medical devices and describe how a data-centric software framework based on open standards, addresses the design requirements for highly reliable, scalable and secure systems. 

Attendees will gain an understanding of the current regulatory expectations, best practices for cybersecurity risk assessments, and standards-based solutions for secure data connectivity.
