Communication Strategies. Case Studies. Applied Knowledge.
Hear from leaders around the globe as they share insights about their experiences and lessons learned throughout their certification journey.
Cybersecurity has proven a challenge not only in ensuring the security of medical devices, but also preparing documents for regulatory submissions. As a result, health authorities in many regions, including the US, Australia, Canada and Japan, have released new cybersecurity guidance documents.
Join Ben Kokx, Director of Product Security at Philips for two-day workshop that will help regulatory and quality professionals develop the knowledge they need to help steer their organizations in the right direction when it comes to global cybersecurity expectations.
In addition, technical staff will benefit from better understanding how to translate regulatory expectations into concrete design and development activities. Organizational leaders will gain strategic knowledge that will increase the likelihood of successful submissions and help establish trust with customers who have concerns about risks related to medical devices on their networks.
