The University of Minnesota has launched a new Center for Medical Device Cybersecurity (CMDC). The CMDC is founded and funded in large part by five U.S. health industry companies: Boston Scientific, Smiths Medical, Optum, Medtronic, and Abbott Laboratories. The center will foster university-industry-government collaborations in creating safe and secure medical devices, developing new research, technologies, education, and training to address potential cybersecurity threats.
