Langevin Weighs In On FDA's Cybersecurity Protocols for Medical Device Manufacturers
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), the co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, sent a letter today to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of the public comment period on proposed cybersecurity guidance for medical device manufacturers.

Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), who co-chairs the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus, voiced his support today for President Obama’s plan to invest $90 million in expanding apprenticeships in the United States through the ApprenticeshipUSA program. “Hands-on learning and on-the-job training are proven methods for creating a highly-skilled, qualified, and competitive workforce, which is the foundation for a strong and growing economy. For existing businesses to grow and new businesses to flourish, they need the right talent for the job, and that comes when we invest in workforce development,” said Langevin. “Apprenticeships ensure that workers are career-ready, and provide a pathway to employment for both young people and also those who are reentering the workforce after being retrained in an in-demand industry.” Since 2014, the United States has added more than 75,000 new apprenticeships. Through this additional support of ApprenticeshipUSA, $60 million wi
