TI:GER® Team Secure InfoShare Places in the 2011 Georgia Bowl® Business Plan Competition

Secure InfoShare, a company that evolved in the TI:GER® (Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results) Program, placed third in the 2011 Georgia Bowl®  Business Plan Competition on February 5.  Secure InfoShare is developing security software in partnership with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University for use in the electronic medical records market.

According to the company, the software provides real-time access to medical information to the right people at the right time, which can be critical in emergency situations and potentially save lives. The company plans to further develop the software for use in other industries, such as telecommunications and financial services, where proper authorization to highly sensitive information is crucial.

The Georgia Bowl (sponsored by Kennesaw State University) attracts teams from leading colleges and universities throughout the Southeast. The competition is based on ideas for new businesses that these teams have developed at their respective schools. Secure InfoShare competed with teams from Georgia colleges as well as University of Florida, Johns Hopkins University, University of Louisville, and University of Manitoba.

Apurva Mohan, who is developing the security software during his doctoral studies in electrical and computer engineering at Georgia Tech, explained that "this software is based on a dynamic authorization technology that grants access permission based on the requester's authorization attributes."

Other members of the Secure InfoShare team include: Quinn Makins and Chinmay Patel, both Georgia Tech MBA students, and Jesse Sandlin, an Emory University law student. These students all participate in TI:GER, a collaboration between Georgia Tech and Emory Law School that brings together science and engineering PhD, MBA, and law students to work on commercializing innovative technologies.

Secure InfoShare's technology development has been supported by several grants including funds from the National Science Foundation, Department of Homeland Security, and National Institute of Health. It is currently being piloted at Emory University's Center for Comprehensive Informatics.
