Date: Tuesday 25 October 2022
Time: 11:00-12:00 BST (GMT +1)/12:00-13:00 CEST

Introduction: Dr Celia Cruz, Head of Regulatory Affairs, Complear, Portugal

Whether it is a software as a medical device or a software in a medical device, digital solutions are increasing their impact in the real world, as they are being more widely applied. In the last few years, regulating entities and legislators across the globe are looking into how to approach their safety and security. One of such approach is through a software bill of materials (SBOM), that can be positioned as a valuable instrument for IT risk management. SBOM has been highlighted by an FDA pre-market guidance and by an IMDRF paper on medical device cybersecurity recently.

In this session we will look into what is the SBOM and its importance, and how to approach over the device life cycle and for the different stakeholders.

There will be a Q&A session at the end.
