Sensato, Divurgent form Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force

Sensato, a cybersecurity firm based in Asbury Park, N.J., and Virginia Beach, Va.-based healthcare consulting firm Divurgent are collaborating to establish the Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force.

The group includes hospitals, IT leaders, medical device manufacturers and cybersecurity researchers.

"We are no longer in a world where identity theft is our only critical concern, but we are now faced with very real challenges related to patient safety," said John Gomez, CEO of Sensato. "To sit back and wait for something to occur is inappropriate. Our industry has extremely talented people with tremendous passion who want to take up the fight. We just need to provide a platform that gets people working together, and the Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force is that platform."
