Back to Business: Continuity of Clinical Operations

Posted by Ben Ransford on Sep 6, 2016 3:53:33 PM
Find me on:
Virta Labs provides a managed cybersecurity service to help hospitals manage their clinical assets and ensure continuity of operations. But our team has an interesting history: we coauthored the first research on cardiac implant security in 2008 and have published extensively on medical device security since then.  As a result, we recently received a flood of technical questions unrelated to our normal menu of services. Virta Labs engineers took time away from building BlueFlow to provide a seminar, white paper, and consultations and to develop our own scientific experimental methods. We're glad that the industry is developing interest in improving medical device security as we've urged for nearly a decade. While this was a necessary and important diversion for us, we are getting back to our core business and clinical tests of BlueFlow.

We have no financial relationship with Muddy Waters Research LLC, St. Jude Medical, or MedSec Ltd. We plan to release a peer-reviewed report shortly so that the greater community may analyze our findings and results.
