Nova Leah CEO Anita Finnegan tells us how her medical device security company came from her own research.

At the 2017 Enterprise Ireland Startup Showcase, we spoke to high-potential start-ups about their business journey so far.

Anita Finnegan founded Nova Leah based on her own research into cybersecurity for medical devices. With this, Finnegan developed a methodology to assist medtech manufacturers in building secure connected devices for use in medical settings and as implants.

The potential of this research was spotted by Enterprise Ireland, which invited Finnegan to take part in a commercialisation fund project.
