For the Audience's Choice – Healthcare Standup or Looking Through the Crystal Ball Towards the Future of Digital Health Technologies

We will leave it up to the audience to choose whether to go for a spontaneous discussion (combined with humor and therefore stand-up) on burning, interesting, annoying, challenging topics in digital health, or (a more conservative choice) to go to a very interesting lecture that tries to predict the future of digital health technologies.

With over 20 years of experience in development, management and R&D in the healthcare industry, Moshe founded Medika (now part of Matrix) to deliver high-end projects, systems, and domain expertise to cutting-edge medical device and digital healthcare companies.​ Under Moshe’s leadership, Medika has made a name for itself by taking on the regulation, cybersecurity, and development challenges unique to the industry.

Cyber Security Testing – Important Considerations For Premarket Submissions

On September 2023, The FDA took an aggressive move towards cyber security of medical devices, by hardening the requirements related to their premarket submission. This presentation offers a comprehensive examination of the updated FDA cybersecurity mandates, emphasizing the pivotal role of security testing in the certification of medical devices.


Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the FDA's expectations for submissions, unraveling the details of the security process and describing the responsibilities placed on vendors. Our goal is to arm vendors with the essential knowledge and strategies required to successfully navigate the complexities of cybersecurity testing compliance.


Throughout this session, we will illuminate various aspects of cybersecurity testing, including static analysis, dynamic analysis, Software Bill of Materials (SBOM), fuzz testing, and penetration testing. Drawing from our extensive expertise in medical device security testing, we aim to provide valuable insights and practical guidance to enhance your cybersecurity testing proficiency in the medical device domain.
