Chapter Activities - 2022

On March 15, 2022, IEEE Atlanta EMBS and IEEE Atlanta Computer Society hosted Erik Moore speaking on the subject of "Mecial Device Cybersecurity."

Medical devices continue to add more sophisticated features to support the customers' needs and cybersecurity bad actors are always becoming cleverer. Medical device designers need to design in security from the beginning to ensure the safety of patients and their data. This discussion will focus on the techniques to employ pre-market and post-market. Pre-market topics include threat modeling, cybersecurity risk assessment, and regulatory requirements. Post-market topics include vulnerability tracking and software updates to address security issues.

Erik Moore is a Technical Fellow in the new product development research and development group at Avanos Medical in Alpharetta, GA. Erik is currently working in a team to add IoT (Internet of Things) functionality to a medical therapy device that is classed by the FDA as a major level of concern. Erik has over 25 years of experience in developing and managing software for medical devices. Most of those years have been in Atlanta. Prior to Avanos, Erik was responsible for the software development team for the CardioMEMS HF System for Abbott. This is a connected medical device where daily information from an implanted pressure sensor is transferred to a web application for review by health care professionals. Other software experiences include sleep diagnostics, sleep therapy, pressure support ventilation, infant apnea monitoring, audio processing, and non-invasive blood pressure monitoring.

The IEEE EMB and Computer Societies are grateful to Mr. Moore for giving this lecture.
