Cybersecurity continues to be a topic of conversation throughout the HTM world. It seems like every day a new news item comes in. The protection of medical devices is very important and continues to be updated.
The latest Webinar Wednesday session “Future of Medical Device Cyber-Security Management” sponsored by Asimily focused on this hot topic. The 274 attendees who participated in the live presentation were eligible to receive 1 CE credit from the ACI.
In the webinar, Asimily Co-Founder and CEO Shankar Somasundaram provided an understanding of how one should approach medical device cyber-security, the different aspects one should look for and how one should approach the issue of patching.
The webinar was popular with attendees who provided positive comments via a post-webinar survey.
“There was a lot of great information presented in a small window of time. Because it was recorded, I will be able to listen to it again so I can capture some of the information I missed. Device integration has become a focal point for my career at this time and this webinar on cybersecurity has given me a better perspective on the importance of really knowing more information about the equipment other than its purpose and if it is working within the parameters as set by the manufacturer,” Biomedical Equipment Technician A. Hale said.
“This webinar was very informational and opened my eyes to new aspects of the patching/mitigation process for medical equipment. It helped me understand the relationship between IT and biomed roles in solving pertinent issues,” Biomedical Equipment Specialist S. Orfano said.
The webinar series also continues to receive positive feedback from attendees.
“The webinars are a great asset as I work for a nonprofit and our educational budget is minimal,” Biomed R. Greer said.
“Great educational series, always enjoy content, always relevant. Thanks for providing everyone with the access for free. Great idea to do this for the industry,” said Senior Biomed J. Harwood.
“Thanks for providing the opportunity for technicians in remote areas to receive valued information through your Webinar Wednesday series,” Biomedical Repair Technician C. Davis-Ryan said.
“Webinar Wednesday sessions are always informative and applicable. It is a great way to keep your pulse on the healthcare technology industry,” said Biomedical Engineering Manager L. Richards.
“The Wednesday Webinar is a must for any new and growing biomed or the established senior biomed trying to keep his skills sharp. All the ranges of information is covered and they are also open for any new topic that your biomedical team might want to tackle. So keep your team sharp and attend the Webinar Wednesday series,” Biomedical Repair Technician W. Wade said.
Praise even came in from as far away as India!
“Thanking TechNation to bring into my notice about this webinar. In this healthcare technology era, everyone looks only into innovation, better diagnosis, prognosis. When I was student on learning telemedicine course many questions raised in me , what about the security. I myself thought OK since its has limited frequency to operate on it won’t be vulnerable anymore. This webinar opened my eyes how to look into device’s security. Happy that this webinar helps know things being posted international. Its enrichment,” said S. Balu, Alumni of Institute of Technology, Coimbatore, India.
