Driving Security, Compliance Along Medical Device Life Cycle

DigiCert's Nelson on Meeting the New Medical Device Security Expectations
Mike Nelson, vice president of digital trust, DigiCert

Over the past decade, the industry has made gradual strides toward enhancing security for connected medical devices. Now, with the FDA wielding the power to regulate these devices, including the ability to deny approvals for those that fail to meet specific cybersecurity requirements, a pivotal shift toward ensuring patient safety has materialized.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Nelson discussed:

  • Navigating the complexities of FDA cybersecurity regulations for medical devices;
  • Common challenges encountered by medical device manufacturers throughout the device life cycle;
  • Effective strategies for safeguarding devices and securing the software supply chain.

Nelson oversees strategic market development for all products, including Device Trust, Software and Content Trust, Enterprise Trust, and Trust Lifecycle Manager. He is dedicated to promoting patient safety and preventing disruptions to the delivery of care. Before DigiCert, Nelson spent his career in healthcare IT, including time at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, GE Healthcare and Leavitt Partners. He frequently consults with organizations, contributes to media reports and speaks at industry conferences about the risks of connected technology and what can be done to improve the security of these systems.
