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 to ensuring the security of medical devices and preparing documents for regulatory submissions. Many medical device companies struggle to retrofit security programs into quality systems not designed to address concerns such as hardening, vulnerability management and global incident response.
Health authorities in many regions, including the US, Australia, Canada, and Japan, have released new cybersecurity guidance documents and it’s essential for regulatory affairs professionals to understand their implications. In addition to premarket concerns, some of these guidance documents also include expectations for postmarket expectations.
This interactive, in-person 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.
