Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council (MassMEDIC)’s latest conference will dive into the intersection of cyber security and medical devices. “Preventing the Unthinkable: Issues in MedTech Cyber Security—Trends and Policies” will feature government officials, industry leaders and security experts giving their perspectives on this challenging topic at Microsoft New England Research and Development Center in Cambridge on Thursday, Oct. 1.
The use of wireless medical technologies has increased in recent years, as manufacturers and product developers have sought to reduce costs and offer streamlined patient monitoring and care. The security of these devices and the security of the patient data collected and stored in them present new challenges to the medical device community.
The keynote speaker, Hiawatha Bray, technology reporter for The Boston Globe, will provide his perspective on the local tech scene, with a special emphasis on health IT and the internet of things. The event will also feature: Jim Finkel, cyber security reporter at Reuters; Suzanne Schwartz, the FDA’s Director of Emergency Preparedness/Operations and Medical Countermeasures; and a number of high ranking medtech executives.
Registration is now open. More information available at MassMEDIC’s website.
