We would like to explicitly point out that in this seminar we are teaching the regulatory requirements and not the concrete technical implementation of IT Security.

This two-day compact seminar on IT security of medical devices pursues the learning objectives:

  • Regulatory requirements
    You know the regulatory requirements for IT security and can classify them according to application areas (e.g. EU / FDA / international, industry-specific / non-specific, manufacturer / operator).
  • EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO)
    You can put the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation in the context of the requirements for IT security of the products.
  • Basics and terms
    You know the protection goals of IT security in the context of medical devices and can confidently handle terms, e.g. threat, vulnerability, asset.
  • IT Security-Related System & Software Requirements
    You will receive an overview of the specific IT security requirements (software / system requirements) resulting from the application of the relevant standards and laws.
  • Security Analysis
    You can apply methods (e.g. Threat Modeling, Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment) to systematically analyze and minimize IT security risks.
  • Security Testing
    You know important test methods in IT security, e.g. penetration testing or fuzz tests
  • Development and Post-Market Processes
    You understand how continuous assurance of IT security can be embedded into the development process and post-market surveillance, and what data sources and roles are available for this.
