The highly-anticipated fifth edition is here! Get the must-have resource for achieving compliance with medical device regulations.
Hear from leaders around the globe as they share insights about their experiences and lessons learned throughout their certification journey.
Cybersecurity has proven to be a challenge not only with regard to ensuring the security of medical devices, but also preparing documents for regulatory submissions. Health authorities in many regions, including the US, Australia, Canada, and Japan, have released new cybersecurity guidance documents. In addition to premarket concerns, some of these guidance documents also include expectations for postmarket expectations.
Medical device companies struggle to build security programs into quality systems that were likely not designed to address typical security issues such as hardening, vulnerability management, and global incident response.
This workshop 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. Technical staff will benefit from better understanding of 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.
After this program, participants will be able to:
