FDA Hosts Two-Day Public Workshop on Medical Devices & Healthcare Cybersecurity

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a two-day public workshop entitled "Collaborative Approaches for Medical Device and Healthcare Cybersecurity". The purpose of the workshop was to obtain information on medical device cybersecurity and follows final guidance announced earlier this month entitled "Content of Premarket Submissions for Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices."

"Medical device innovators remain vigilant in maintaining the highest safety and security measures, and will work with FDA, Hospitals and other stakeholders closely to address any concerns," said Mark Leahey, President & CEO of MDMA, this week. "It is crucial that as innovators seek to develop technologies to improve patient care and alleviate suffering, we clearly identify what the potential problems are, and ensure that any new regulations are reasonable."
