Protenus: DreamIt Health grad raising $750K for health records’ cybersecurity

Protenus is now working on a cybersecurity system to protect electronic medical records at hospitals across the U.S. Over the next year Protenus plans to test its cybersecurity system, which "detects inappropriate EMR access in real-time," in the Johns Hopkins health system.

Take a guess as to which industry suffered the most cybersecurity breaches in 2013.

According to one health IT startup, that’s healthcare. Protenus pointed that out at DreamIt Health Baltimore Demo Day in April.

As cofounder Robert Lord explained at Demo Day, electronic medical records, shockingly enough, “weren’t built with security in mind.”

Protenus is now working on a cybersecurity system to protect electronic medical records at hospitals across the U.S. Over the next year Protenus plans to test its cybersecurity system, which “detects inappropriate EMR access in real-time,” in the Johns Hopkins health system.

To do that, Protenus is now raising $750,000. As Technical.ly Baltimore reported, the startup has already raised $80,000 in equity.
