On September 22–23, experts in medical device cybersecurity will gather to discuss critical issues that affect connected devices and hospitals. The 2nd Annual Legacy Medical Device Cybersecurity Conference takes place at Hogan Lovells in Washington, D.C., and there is the option to attend the event virtually if you are unable to travel.

The event will be led by conference chairs Michelle Jump, Global Regulatory Advisory – Medical Device Cybersecurity and Stephanie Domas, Vice President of Research, both of MedSec.

Cyber intrusions through connected devices, operating systems, or software applications pose risks to patient safety and data privacy. They can disrupt operations and lead to substantial financial losses. Hospital purchasing departments may ignore cybersecurity issues at the front end, and devices often remain in use well beyond the manufacturer’s end of liability and end of support. Legacy systems are particularly attractive targets for hackers because of their vulnerability. Compensating controls may prolong a device’s secure lifespan, but what role can, should, or do manufacturers play in post-end-of-life support? What help is available for smaller hospitals with limited budgets and lacking adequate internal technical expertise?

We invite you to submit an abstract for consideration to present at this conference. When filling out the form, please select “2nd Annual Legacy Medical CyberSecurity Conference” in the drop-down menu. The submission deadline is May 11, 2020. The notification date is May 18.

Registration for the event is also open. We look forward to seeing you there!
