Aligning with the Latest FDA Cybersecurity Expectations; an Educational Lunch & Learn Session Hosted by Velentium

Wednesday, February 8th from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. PST
Location: Room 211AB

In April 2022, the FDA released the latest draft of requirements for cybersecurity in premarket submissions. In this presentation, Christopher will discuss the new medical device cybersecurity laws and regulatory requirements and review the new manufacturer's activities expected by the FDA, including the expected 38 cybersecurity deliverables. Most importantly, we will see how to add cybersecurity processes to your development lifecycle that will satisfy the FDA and secure your medical device system without generating massive cost burdens or development delays.
