Cybersecurity is a high priority for physicians, hospitals, and manufacturers of all internet-connected devices, and even more so when patient safety and health information are at stake. DITTA continues to be pro-active and lead efforts to strengthen cybersecurity for medical technologies. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. Collaboration between regulators, healthcare providers and industry are thus essential to safeguard the patients' health information and their physical safety. As IMDRF has recently adopted its guidance on cybersecurity of medical devices, the workshop takes place at the right time to discuss its implementation in the different jurisdictions.
