Overview of the webinar

This webinar will focus on medical devices, a key concern for FDA as they become more and more complex, and require methodical risk assessment and mitigation. Protecting medical devices from hacking where someone can alter the actual code embedded in the device could result in injury or death to a patient or consumer.  A serious threat, it must be dealt with at all levels to make sure the end product being used by a patient or consumer is perfectly safe and delivers the effective treatment required.

We will look in depth at the current FDA trends related to compliance and enforcement.

Why should you attend?

This webinar is intended for those involved in planning, execution, and support of computer system validation activities, working in the FDA-regulated industries, including pharmaceutical, medical device, biologics, tobacco, and tobacco-related products (e-liquids, e-cigarettes, pouch tobacco, cigars, etc.).  Some of these systems are used in the manufacture and testing of medical device products. Other software products work with medical devices to provide the device functionality. Yet other software is by itself Software-as-a-Medical-Device (SaaMD). We’ll cover all of these and the current trends in the industry, along with best practices for compliance.
