The Healthcare and Med Device event is included in the VIP All-Access Pass, or can be purchased for only $225 as a special Half-day session ticket.

“The Twin Cities is a hotbed of medical device development and a perfect location to hold a Healthcare and Medical Device Security workshop. We are putting together a program that should be of particular help for smaller manufacturers and health care providers. It will be a very worthwhile program to attend.”
Ken Hoyme, co-chair
