DxMA Seminar on Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity for IVD Systems - Protect your Devices and your Data

August 1, 2016  2:00-4:00PM

The increasing connectivity of diagnostic instruments, information systems, and mobile phone and tablet applications, especially for point-of-care devices, exponentially increases the risk of a security breach. Laboratory customers are increasingly concerned and, less than a year ago, the FDA issued the “Draft Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff,” advising medical device manufacturers to address cybersecurity “throughout a product’s lifecycle, including during the design, development, production, distribution, deployment, and maintenance of the device.”

Join DxMA for expert presentations and a panel discussion on Cybersecurity for IVD Systems. Learn how to anticipate your customers’ needs and meet the additional Certifications that must accompany future FDA “device” applications and submissions.

Speakers include opinion leaders from information technology services, business/healthcare consulting, and IVD system design and development.
