DIGITALEUROPE is proud to introduce NovaLeah, among the selected SMEs to participate in the Future Unicorn Award. This Irish company is driving the digitisation of SMEs and enterprises by helping their client ensures that connected medical devices are safe from cyber-attacks and compliant with regulation.
Nova Leah provides cybersecurity risk management solutions for medical device manufacturers and healthcare providers. Since 2008, when Dr. Kevin Fu and his research team published research outlining how a pacemaker could potentially be hacked or even turned off, the entire medical industry has become acutely aware of the cybersecurity vulnerabilities associated with connected medical devices. Connected medical devices represent a rapidly growing sector in healthcare.
There are currently between 10 to 15 million such devices in use globally, and the global connected medical device market will exceed $136.8 billion by 2021. These devices are increasingly vulnerable to cybersecurity risks, and the regulatory compliance landscape is complex and constantly evolving.
SelectEvidence®, Nova Leah’s flagship product is an expert cybersecurity risk assessment platform. This solution guides MDMs through the processes of identifying threats to their products and implementing the correct security controls to mitigate those threats. SelectEvidence® provides manufacturers with an intelligent, standardised, repeatable, and traceable approach to implementing cybersecurity requirements across connected medical devices.
The Pan-European Future Unicorn Award aims to highlight innovative SMEs that have the potential to become Europe’s next unicorns. The award is compiled by asking all the national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE to nominate a single SME from their country. This results in a truly pan-European selection of incredible digital companies from all sectors.
The award will be delivered at our flagship event, Masters of Digital, in Brussels on 6 February.
