Health Canada releases new cybersecurity guidance

Health Canada released the full guidance document, Pre-market Requirements for Medical Device Cybersecurity. It can be viewed at:  https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/medical-devices/application-information/guidance-documents/cybersecurity.htm

It includes requirements such as:

“Risk management is required for all medical devices throughout their life-cycle. Manufacturers should incorporate cybersecurity into the risk management process for every device that consists of or contains software. Manufacturers are also encouraged to develop and maintain a framework for managing cybersecurity risks throughout their organizations.”

“All cybersecurity risk control measures should be successfully verified and validated against the device’s design requirements and/or design specifications. Manufacturers should be able to trace all verification and validation activities back to the device’s design requirements and/or design specifications.”

Need Your Input!

We have been researching where and when to hold our next 3-day 62304/FDA training course and we want your feedback!
1) Does the location in the US for a public course matter to you … for example, west coast (e.g., San Francisco area) vs. east coast (e.g., Boston)?
2) What locations do you prefer?
3) Would you prefer just the 3-day FDA/62034 course or to have the option of a full week 3-day course followed by cybersecurity 1-day, and a usability 1-day?
4) What other countries would you want to see our course offered publicly?
5) What are best two months of the year for the course?  What are the least favored (not workable) months?
