Medical device cyber security
The advent of communicative, responsive and software-based medical devices has allowed significant benefits to both patients and clinicians, however, it has also increased the potential risk of harm to patients by introducing complexities concerning cybersecurity. Providing clear guidance to industry on how to develop and monitor cyber secure medical devices is an emerging area of importance for the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
The TGA has recently engaged CSIRO to conduct research into medical device cyber security to support the development of a TGA guidance document, aimed to assist the medical devices ecosystem to implement best-practice approaches to cyber security. The CSIRO is now opening the conversation with the medical device industry – including developers, sponsors and users (patients, clinicians, health professionals) of medical devices - to better understand their work and how we can collectively continue developing and implementing safe medical device technology.
To ensure engagement and input from an extensive and diverse set of stakeholders within the medical device ecosystem the TGA in collaboration with CSIRO are hosting a 2 hour workshop, and welcome anyone from the Australian medical device ecosystem who may be involved in the development, implementation and management, or application of, communicative, responsive and software based medical devices to either join us in person, or register your details for the interactive webinar.
