Medical Device Cybersecurity – How to start, with Axel Wirth Chief Security Strategist, MedCrypt

Cybersecurity risk management as a discipline is not new, however in these years cybersecurity for medical devices have more and more focus both due publicized real-life incidents and due to increased EU and FDA regulatory requirements.
As many new Medical Devices are connected to network, use cloud services, cybersecurity risk management needs to be part of standard engineering processes used to produce software-based medical devices.
Cybersecurity is not only needed for regulatory reasons, also to provide for patient safety and privacy and to protect a company's business interests. Cybersecurity requires new skills and processes for a Medical Device company and its engineers, yet many find it can be difficult to get started. 

In this Webinar you will get an introduction to cybersecurity for medical devices, cybersecurity process, and regulatory requirements – which you can you use as jump-off point for your endeavor to implement cybersecurity-capable engineering processes for your future Medical Devices.

The Webinar will be conducted by Axel Wirth, Chief Security Strategist at MedCrypt, Author of the book:  Medical Device Cybersecurity for Engineers and Manufacturers.
Axel has worked in cybersecurity with special focus on medical devices for many years and have a lot of real life as well as regulatory experience within the field.
