Data Protection for Health Care Workshop

Scope

Health care is an essential service that uses a great deal of sensitive personal data which has a high black market value being a lucrative target for data theft and ransomware attacks. The EU NIS Directive (EU 2016/1148) and GDPR (EU 2016/679) will harmonize and improve information security in Europe. Both require relevant ICT infrastructure operators to perform risk assessments, introduce appropriate security measures to manage identified risks, and report security breaches. Unfortunately, risk-based approaches are notoriously difficult to implement in a consistent and comprehensive fashion. They depend on a high level of understanding of both cybersecurity and of the system or network to be protected.

This workshop aims to bring researches and health care institutions together, in order to present, and to discuss, different cyber-security solutions being developed, and already applied in order to enhance privacy, security, and data protection within the health care context.

Title: ProTego –  Data-protection Toolkit Reducing Risks in Hospitals and Care Centers 

Abstract

Health care is an essential service that uses a great deal of sensitive personal data which has a high black market value being a lucrative target for data theft and ransomware attacks. Unfortunately, risk-based approaches are notoriously difficult to implement in a consistent and comprehensive fashion. This is increasingly inappropriate as health care providers introduce IoT systems, cloud services and (in the near future) 5G networks to provide services in which patients are more engaged, may own some of the devices used, and want access in hospitals, on the move or at home. The ProTego project develops a toolkit and guidelines to help health care systems users address cybersecurity risks in this new environment.
