Seth Carmody, PhD, a well-known medical device cybersecurity expert with more than eight years of leadership experience at the U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), was named to the CAREier Advisory Board. With his specialized background, Dr. Carmody brings a deep understanding of the issues affecting device security as well as their implications for patient privacy and regulatory status to the critical healthcare messaging firm.
Dr. Seth Carmody launched his career at the FDA in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH). At CDRH, he served as a medical device reviewer and consumer safety officer, working in the diabetes technology and device software spaces.
Following this, for more than four years, Dr. Carmody served as cybersecurity program manager in CDRH’s Office of the Center Director. In that role, he architected technology policy and built a response group to deal with vulnerabilities and cyber-attacks in medical devices.
Currently, he is vice president of regulatory strategy for MedCrypt, an innovative supplier of security solutions for medical device vendors.
“As the number and diversity of medical devices and healthcare IT systems expand, cybersecurity is becoming more important and complex than ever before. Device manufacturers need a reliable communications network to ensure vital security information is exchanged and regulatory demands are met. Until now, reaching all the required stakeholders—from patients to physicians and hospitals—was impossible, requiring resources better spent elsewhere. But CAREier changes that. It’s a revolutionary concept and company, and I am extremely excited to play a role in their success.”Dr. Carmody – Company Advisor
“Dr. Carmody combines sophisticated knowledge of medical device cybersecurity and FDA processes and regulatory paths. His expertise and viewpoints are hard to match. We’re thrilled to have him on our team, and we know he will be a major contributor on the advisory board and to our continued success.”Ryan Bass – CAREier CEO
