Enhancing medical device security: unpacking FDA's cybersecurity regulations and empowering action

21st September 2023, America 11:00 - 12:30 EST

How can you expertly navigate the intricacies of FDA cybersecurity regulations, all while elevating product security, securing your software supply chain, and safeguarding against evolving threats?

As the FDA wields its latest authority to govern cybersecurity in medical devices, an imperative focus emerges on critical aspects: device identity, software/code integrity, rock-solid authentication practices, and the secure encryption of patient data transmitted by medical devices. In an era of increasing interconnectivity among devices, networks, and servers, novel threats emerge, posing risks to healthcare systems, sensitive data, and patient welfare. In response, the FDA now requires reasonable assurance of product security, mandating that device manufacturers demonstrate the efficacy of their security measures.

So join the Senior Director of IoT and Digital Trust at DigiCert and a select group of your industry peers for an engaging discussion delving into public key Infrastructure and its role as the "connective tissue" bridging compliance and security to meet regulations...and keep products on the market. Gain invaluable insights from fellow peers around effective strategies for device protection and securing the software supply chain, and safeguarding against evolving cybersecurity threats, including the ever-looming specter of quantum computing.

Together, let's unravel the complexities of FDA cybersecurity regulations for medical devices, embolden our response, and chart a course toward a safer, more secure future in healthcare technology.
