On Oct. 1st, the FDA released final guidance on “Content of Premarket Submission for Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices.”  The document had previously been published as a draft version (June 2013), after public comment this final version has been issued. Symantec had submitted review comments and we applaud the FDA on finalizing this important document.
 
 
What does the document address?
 
Overall, the FDA maintained the approach of the initial draft, laying out how manufacturers should consider cybersecurity in the design of network-connected medical devices and that they should make cybersecurity documentation a part of their premarket submission. The document has become more specific in some areas, for example by referencing a list of FDA-recognized standards, but also by specifically referring to patient safety as one of the main drivers behind this guidance.

Increasingly, medical devices are being networked to improve efficiency, enhance clinical value, and support patient safety initiatives. Yet, this increasing integration results in higher exposure to cyber threats like hacker attacks and malware, and increasingly creates dependency and reliance on the complex interaction of all components. 
 
It is, in a sense, a “system of systems” problem and hospitals’ BioMedical Engineering and IT Departments are challenged to protect this complex and critical part of their infrastructure against an exponentially growing and increasingly sophisticated threat landscape.
 
In this webinar, you will:
  • Develop an understanding of the underlying and complex medical device cybersecurity challenges we are facing
  • Learn how to minimize risks
  • Be introduced to available best practices and resources.

The use of cloud as a deployment alternative for IT infrastructures, application platforms, and applications has evolved over the past decade from novelty, to proof-of-concept, to pilot, to a fundamental instrument in IT's toolbox. Lately, it seems as if every enterprise has its head in the clouds, and healthcare is right in the mix. IT demands efficiency, business units demand flexibility, and end users demand convenience. Add growing budget and staffing pressures, and it’s easy to understand why we are turning toward cloud computing. But, even as individuals and healthcare organizations realize the potential agility and cost savings benefits of cloud computing, concerns about security and availability of clouds persist.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The history and evolution of cloud for healthcare
  • Best practices to help...
