Cybersecurity in an Era of Smart Pump Interoperability

Cybersecurity in an Era of Smart Pump Interoperability
  • Webinar

How connected medical devices are protecting patient data and patient safety by utilizing strong, comprehensive cybersecurity standards and penetration testing procedures for connected medical devices.

Join us for an educational webinar Tuesday, February 5, at 2 PM CST to learn how you can keep patients safe and prevent the exposure of sensitive patient data with UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) certification and white hat vulnerability exposure testing.

In this complimentary webinar, industry experts will share the importance of medical devices meeting FDA guidelines and third-party cybersecurity standards, ongoing cybersecurity testing, and established threat modeling processes associated. We'll also provide a live cybersecurity demonstration with a Class II medical device.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Identify processes and procedures needed organizationally to handle cybersecurity compliance during development and post deployment of medical devices
  • Functionalities needed during the design and development of new medical devices to help prevent cybersecurity risks
  • Assessing and managing software weaknesses in commercially available software used in medical devices
  • Understanding White Hat security testing and tools needed to find security breaches via hacking
  • How standards help in demonstrating cybersecurity resilience to regulators and customers
