2019 Medical Device Security 101 Conference
Security in the healthcare industry is in a higher risk state than almost any other industry. Medical Devices and associated systems are especially vulnerable. Recent attacks on healthcare and multiple new vulnerabilities discovered highlight the need to make meaningful improvements. This year's theme is "Take Action," creating actionable ideas relevant to attendees to bring back to their organizations.
The 2019 Medical Device Security 101 Conference, hosted by the University of Michigan’s Archimedes Center for Medical Device Security, is a two-day educational workshop for healthcare providers, medical device manufacturers and industry regulators to learn and speak frankly about medical device security threats and solutions.
Our events do not focus on the latest industry buzz or trendy new product development. We want you to feel comfortable speaking freely about your cyber security issues with trusted and respected professionals who can help you establish best practices for improving medical device security. At Archimedes, we provide a secure forum for you to learn about emerging cyber security issues and then we arm you with the knowledge to better protect both your patients and clients.
Attendees from our previous conferences have included:
- Chief information security officers
- Directors of product engineering
- System engineers
- VPs of global product security
- IT security managers
- Chairs of medical device security standards bodies
- Security researchers
- Front-line engineers from clinical facilities
