Ann Arbor, MI, March 25, 2016 — Healthcare security company Virta Laboratories, Inc. received a $750K grant from the NSF Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. Virta Labs provides solutions for hospitals and medical device manufacturers to measure and visualize exposure to cybersecurity risks without interrupting clinical workflow. The company plans to use the federal grant to extend its product lines into healthcare delivery organizations that face serious cybersecurity challenges. Virta Labs received a Phase I grant from the same program in 2015.
I asked our (now famous) intern Jessica to share a sampling of some of the "crazier" things she's seen during her time at Virta. Read on for a selection of her findings while poking around on some medical devices.
In our last post, we brought you some information about internships at Virta Labs and our recruiting process.
Recently we've been fielding a lot of questions about internships at Virta Labs ('tis the season), and we wanted to share some answers to the questions we hear most often. We're always happy to hear from prospective candidates. tl;dr: get in touch if you're amazing and you want to take ownership of a meaningful project during an internship.
Also, keep your eyes peeled in the coming days for an interview with hacker extraordinaire and current intern Jessica Wilson.
