Virginia Tech IDEA Group Examines Cybersecurity Research

An alumni group with ties to military and intelligence assesses high-tech cybersecurity research at Virginia Tech.  This is becoming an increasingly important topic in healthcare IT because of the sensitive nature of the information involved.

One of the things that has held back some companies, and probably to a larger extent healthcare providers themselves, is the uncertainty of how secure healthcare IT products, such as EMR/EHR, really are.  There will always be some danger involved because for every good guy working to keep our information safe there is at least one other guy working to try and steal it.  That being said,  I feel incredibly safe with the security that already exists, but I am also glad that there is continued work to make it all safer.
