Cybersecurity of Medical Devices, April 25th

Healthcare delivery is dependent on biomedical device networks for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. It’s critical that healthcare delivery systems understand how to evaluate, assess, and mitigate risk for medical devices and associated networks.

Register for our training on Wednesday April 25th, 2018 to learn the key issues related to medical device cyber-risk. The training is organized by Health Capital Helsinki and NewCo and it is free of charge.

Time & location:

25.4.2018, 9–11:30 p.m. @ Terkko Health Hub

Dr. Dale Nordenberg is the co-founder and Executive Director for the Medical Device Innovation, Safety, and Security Consortium (, which is a non-profit public health and patient safety organization focused on medical device cybersecurity. He is also CEO of Novasano Health and Science.

M.Sc. (eng.) Jari Seppälä is an automation security specialist at Tampere University of Technology where he founded and directs the Industrial Control System Cyber Security Lab at Tampere University. He has broad experience in teaching ICS cybersecurity and is active in advancing medical device cybersecurity.


This workshop will focus on key issues related to medical device cyber-risk

  1. Understanding the key role of connected devices in patient care at healthcare systems and at home; approaches to understanding the risk associated with connected medical devices; the difference between patient safety, medical device risk assessment, medical device vulnerabilities, and population risk.
  2. Understanding the similarity and differences between industrial control systems versus medical devices and what lessons from ICS can be leveraged to advance medical device security.
  3. Opportunities to leverage public health best practices to advance medical device post-market studies/surveillance and intervention initiatives
  4. Understanding trends in medical device cyber vulnerability identification, reporting, and mitigation; and the difference between vulnerability management, risk assessment, and cyber security certification programs.
  5. Understanding how can we prepare for hospital hackers or other possible cybersecurity threats?
  6. Introduction to secure architecture and medical device cybersecurity and learn how the vulnerabilities and cybersecurity risks related to medical devices can be managed.

Target audience:

Clinical engineers, network and security engineers, CIO, CTO, risk officers, clinicians including physicians, nurses respiratory therapists, laboratorians, etc., researchers, innovators, and start-ups in the fields of health and life science

We hope to see you at Terkko!
