Jan. 20-21 the Food and Drug Administration will host the "Moving Forward: Collaborative Approaches to Medical Device Cybersecurity" public workshop to bring stakeholders together for discussion on the complex challenges surrounding medical device security.

"The purpose of this workshop is to highlight past collaborative efforts, increase awareness of existing maturity models (i.e. frameworks leveraged for benchmarking an organization's processes) which are used to evaluate cybersecurity status, standards and tools in development, and to engage the multi-stakeholder community in focused discussions on unresolved gaps and challenges that have hampered progress in advancing medical device cybersecurity," the FDA website reads.

The workshop is a collaboration between the National Information Sharing Analysis Center, HHS and the Department of Homeland Security and will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the FDA's Campus in Silver Springs, Md.
