Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, announced it will present at the fourth annual Medical Device Connectivity Conference and Exhibition (MDCC). The event will be held November 1-2 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston and will focus on connecting medical devices to people, workflow, and information systems.
During the second day of the conference, Chris Bolinger of the Laird Technologies Connectivity Products Business Unit will give a presentation on FIPS 140-2 security and its implications for Wi-Fi networks. A United States Government computer security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules, FIPS 140-2 is required by Veterans Administration hospitals. Healthcare providers outside of the federal government view FIPS 140-2 as an increasingly relevant and desirable standard. The presentation describes what is contained in the standard and how Wi-Fi products are tested and certified as compliant.
MDCC presents an ideal opportunity for Laird Technologies, a Platinum Sponsor of the conference, to showcase its embedded wireless solutions
