Mitre has established two organizations that will explore approaches to protect critical infrastructure from cyber threats and address challenges in the public health care system.
The Cyber Infrastructure Protection Innovation Center and Clinical Insights Innovation Cell will operate under Mitre Labs, which was created to advance applied science and technology innovation, the nonprofit company said Monday.
The Cyber Infrastructure Protection Innovation Center will serve as a link between public and private sectors to secure critical infrastructure and institute approaches for a better understanding of operational technology, industrial control and cyber-physical systems.
The Clinical Insights Innovation Cell, on the other hand, will focus on deploying clinical health data, insights and innovative artificial intelligence strategies for the transformation of clinical trial performance in healthcare systems.
“These new groups will help us move faster, be bolder, and act as better partners for securing our nation’s critical infrastructure and leveraging clinical and genomic data to tackle the problems of infectious disease and the promise of precision medicine,” said Charles Clancy, senior vice president and general manager of Mitre Labs.
