As the pace of technological innovation and evolution becomes more intense, there is a critical need for computer system validation, 21 CFR Part 11 (Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures) compliance, and data integrity assurance to continue in environments where AI is becoming prevalent.

FDA became alarmed by the lack of compliance to meet data integrity and Part 11 requirements during the last decade. Out of compliance citations during this period, including Form 483s and Warning Letters have skyrocketed for these key areas of compliance. But why?

Based on discussions with clients and stakeholders at conferences and meetings, it has become more and more obvious that most of the performers in industry are under management pressure to do more work with fewer resources and in less time. This continues to lead performers to seek faster and easier ways to get the work done, and opens the door to more conversation around the use of AI in software development, testing, and support.

It is time to embark on the AI revolution and continue to deliver quality products with compliance to meet the needs of the consumers by putting newer, more innovative, safer, and more effective products in their hands, all of which are key focus areas for FDA.

Why should you Attend: Providing safe and effective medical devices, drugs, and other FDA-regulated products is in the best interests of all those involved in the development, manufacturing, testing, and distribution of these products. One of the largest current threats to these devices working safely and effectively is cyberattacks that can wreak havoc on code and device functionality. Preventing these attacks by identifying sources of threats and rooting them out before they can take effect is of the utmost concern. And with newer technologies such as AI in the mix, it means more challenges for companies that develop, test, and support software applications in the life science industries.

In this webinar, you will learn just how AI can increase efficiency and effectiveness of software development life cycle (SDLC) activities, enabling the delivery and support of computer solutions that will drive industry over the coming years.

cyberattacks threaten medical devices and how industry is currently responding to them. We will discuss the many ways of preventing and mitigating the cybersecurity risk, and about the industry best practices that can help your company do the same.

This webinar is intended for those working in the FDA-regulated industries, including pharmaceutical, medical device, biological, animal health and tobacco. Functions that are applicable include research and development, manufacturing, Quality Control, distribution, clinical testing and management, adverse events management and post-marketing surveillance.

You should attend this webinar if you are responsible for planning, executing or managing the development or implementation of any system governed by FDA medical device or software regulations, or if you are maintaining or supporting such a system.

Speaker Profile
Carolyn (McKillop) Troiano has more than 35 years of experience in the tobacco, pharmaceutical, medical device and other FDA-regulated industries. She has worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical and tobacco companies in the US and Europe, developing and executing compliance strategies and programs. Carolyn is currently active in the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), and Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters in the Richmond, VA area.

During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. She developed validation programs and strategies back in the mid-1980s, when the first FDA guidebook was published on the subject, and collaborated with FDA and other industry representatives on 21 CFR Part 11, the FDA's electronic record/electronic signature regulation.
