The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Departments of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security will host a public workshop on Oct. 21-22 to develop a collaborative approach to medical device cybersecurity.

“The purpose of the meeting is to catalyze collaboration in the healthcare and public health sector to more fully address medical device cybersecurity,” writes Suzanne Schwartz, M.D., director of emergency preparedness/operations and medical countermeasures at FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, in an Oct. 8 blog. “The meeting will bring together medical device manufacturers; healthcare providers; biomedical engineers; IT system administrators; professional and trade organizations; insurance providers; cybersecurity researchers; local, state and federal government staffs; and representatives of information security firms.”
