USENIX HealthTech hosts medical device security panel from FDA, VA, and industry in DC

I am pleased to announce that representatives from FDA, the VA, and medical device manufacturing have agreed to participate in a technical panel on recent activity in the medical device security space. Early registration for the USENIX HealthTech Workshop ends on July 22. Note, this is a technical and research workshop. With a bit of policy to spice things up.
