DITTA was pleased to participate at the last International Medical Device Regulators Forum (Opens external link in new windowIMDRF) meeting in Shanghai, China. In conjunction with the IMDRF meeting, we hosted a successful workshop on cybersecurity representing the views from regulators, industry, SDOs and health care providers. This workshop was attended by more than 120 participants. Some of the themes from the workshop were that cybersecurity is a global concern, it is a shared-responsibility, and that IMDRF has an important role to play to coordinate regulatory activities.
