On Wednesday, March 25th at 2pm ET, MDMA will host an important (no cost) webinar, "Cybersecurity: Risks and Best Practices for Medical Device Makers", hosted by Akin Gump, LLP

Personal health data is a valuable commodity, making medical devices a potential target of hackers. Beyond data breaches, security risks can lead to patient harm by interfering with the proper functioning of medical devices. This webinar will describe FDA's current expectations for cybersecurity protections, and offer strategic cybersecurity considerations for product clearance and life cycle management. Akin Gump's attorneys will also recommend best practices for preventing and responding to breaches, and will address the latest policy development concerning cybersecurity.

Specific topics will include:

  • FDA's guidance on cybersecurity, and balancing security with usability factors
  • Crafting an Incident Response Plan
  • Ensuring that you have sufficient cyber-insurance
  • Key tips in internal investigations and responding to lawsuits
  • Employee training programs
  • Latest policy developments in Congress and in the Administration

All registrants will receive an email on the morning of the webinar with the log in instructions.
