Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Led by Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Council member Dr. Kevin Fu, who has spent the last decade working on medical device security, the group has assembled an impressive list of instructors for the two-day training conference.  Speakers include individuals who chaired the development of cybersecurity standards now recognized by FDA; experts from the Mayo Clinic and American Hospital Association; officials from FDA, OCR, and OIG; hospital CISOs; and leaders from manufacturers and providers. In addition, attendees will be given a free copy of the AAMI TIR57 on principles for medical device security risk management—recognized this summer by the FDA—to complement a lecture explaining how to apply the AAMI guidance.

The first day of the conference is now open to researchers, educational institutions, and students for a limited time. Register today at a special rate ($950 USD) for the first day of the conference with promotional code AMED2017 to get access to over 20 expert speakers at this highly selective event attended by medical device manufacturers and healthcare delivery organizations.
