HOUSTON – May 21, 2021 – To protect IoT developers and manufacturers against mounting cybersecurity threats, Velentium, a professional engineering firm that specializes in the design and manufacturing of therapeutic and diagnostic active medical devices for companies ranging from startups to Fortune 100s, announced today the launch and open enrollment of its level one training and certification series, Mastering Embedded Cybersecurity.
Following the launch of the bestselling textbook Medical Device Cybersecurity for Engineers and Manufacturers – co-authored by Christopher Gates, Velentium’s Director of Product Security – the company designed a formal training program on how to implement cybersecurity best practices and processes during design, development, production, premarket, and postmarket activities.

Classes begin August 23, September 27, and October 25, 2021, with an additional mid-November or early December sessions on the horizon.
