Presentation Topic: Cybersecurity is the Next Frontier of Risk Management"

Technology is advancing rapidly. Cybersecurity risk management is no longer optional.


Presented By: 

Naveen Agarwal, Ph.D.

News of cybersecurity breaches seem to occur with alarming frequency. Whether it is consumer data in a financial institution, or patient records in a hospital, cybersecurity of these systems continues to be a significant risk in light of frequent attacks by hackers. Even medical devices, especially implantable medical devices, are susceptible to such attacks and there have already been several high-profile recalls. Despite our best efforts, cyberattacks are likely to continue with increasing level of sophistication.


Cybersecurity is an evolving field with standards and best practices continuing to develop and mature. In my presentation, I will provide a general background on this topic with a high-level overview of known vulnerabilities and current state of the art. In particular, I will focus on medical device cybersecurity and share some of the current guidance from the FDA. I will also discuss how you can adapt your existing ISO 14971 implementation framework to address unique risk management issues related to cybersecurity
