With cyber attacks on the rise, it’s critical to your patients and your business that you recognize the security threats you’re facing and have a plan in place to prevent them.

The 2018 Medical Device Security 101 Conference, hosted by the University of Michigan’s Archimedes Center for Medical Device Security, is a 2.5-day educational workshop for healthcare providers, medical device manufacturers, and industry regulators to learn and speak frankly about medical device security threats and solutions. 

Register now! The 2018 Medical Device Security 101 Conference will take place January 15-17, 2018 in Orlando, Florida. Space is limited. Sign up for our newsletter to receive conference updates.

Why Attend?

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.

  • Chief information security officers
  • Directors of product engineering
  • System engineers
  • VPs of global product security
  • IT security managers
  • Physicians
  • Chairs of medical device security standards bodies
  • Security researchers
  • Front-line engineers from clinical facilities
