Join Orthogonal’s CEO Bernhard Kappe this Wednesday as he partners with Garrett Technologies’ Michael Garrett and UL’s Laura Élan for a deep dive into medical device cybersecurity. The event will be hosted at Matter, the Chicago med-tech innovation hub, and will be live streamed.

Coexistence and Cybersecurity for connected health products by Medical Device innovators who have been quick to adopt new connectivity technologies. These technologies enable communication between medical devices and software, improving the speed and quality of care, as well as patient safety. As hospitals, caregivers, and healthcare IT professionals transition to connected healthcare products, solutions for secure, uninterrupted connectivity are increasingly in demand.

With this widespread adoption, both medical device developers and clinicians must now be cognizant of the potential risks connected devices pose in the healthcare setting.

The presentations topics include:

  • Design considerations affecting wireless coexistence
  • Best practices in medical device development, including risk and hazard analysis
  • Risk analysis for cybersecurity
  • An overview of global cybersecurity regulations, including confidentiality
  • How to craft objective evidence for security assurance
  • Design considerations affecting wireless coexistence

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at MATTER, 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza Suite 1230 Chicago, Illinois 60654 from 1:30 pm to 4 pm Central. Although the event is free to attend, registration is requested. Registration for the event, including live streaming access, is available online at Eventbrite.
