Delivery of health services (clinical and administrative) through ICT and connected medical devices is a necessity for healthcare organizations, and changes the way healthcare services are delivered and data are shared. Therefore, cyberattacks and staff misbehaviour may have significant negative effects on business continuity, patients' safety and data privacy.
Current levels of privacy protection and security are highly dependent on the intrinsic risk embedded in the existing systems, medical devices and procedures: in a long term perspective, if the investments for physiological renewal/upgrade of these assets were inspired to a "privacy and security by design" approach, the overall risk would decrease.
According to this approach the European Commission has set up regulatory measures (e.g. GDPR, MDR, EU Directive 2016/1148), and also, through the Horizon 2020 programme, funded research and innovation projects to develop solutions that are effective and usable in the healthcare context to reduce the overall ex-ante risk. This includes threats specific to Covid-like situations.
We invite representatives from hospitals, Medical Device manufacturers, ICT systems providers and Digital service providers to attend this webinar.
With repersentatives from the health, legal and cybersecurity sectors, we'll be hearing about the main challenges facing the medical sector in ensuring secure integration of services that comply to EU regulations. We'll also hear about three cutting-edge security and privacy by-design solutions under development thanks to EC-funding.
