Cyber-Security and Integration on Social Good and Healthcare Services

Scope

Social good and healthcare are increasingly dependent on products and services whose security and integration should be attended. These systems are becoming larger and more complex, due to the increasingly involved processes and amount of the available heterogeneous data generated by a growing number of interconnected control and monitoring devices. Moreover, those devices are also heavily dependent on systems whose security, management, and compliance must also be considered. This evolving scenario requires new strategies to improve the security and the performance of integration of services of their associated frameworks. Compliance management and cyber-security forensic analysis are rapidly emerging in Information Technologies (IT) as important requirements to be attended, mainly due to the exponential growth of available raw data produced by sensors, which demands the development of new approaches for data analytics to gather new insights in terms of security. Such evolving scenario requires scalable frameworks able to collect and consume a massive quantity of heterogeneous structured and unstructured data, foreseeing the tracking and tracing of eventual anomalies supported by new machine learning models or data analytics approaches. Moreover, innovative frameworks can contribute to improve their protection by considering forensic techniques (for supporting, for instance, criminal law enforcement); and to improve continuous auditing (e.g. on subcontractors, IT systems, supply chain, and personnel activity) for compliance management and service quality assessment processes. Additionally, it is required a higher degree of flexibility in terms of security management, monitoring, and configuration to prevent possible risks arising, for instance, from operational errors or cyber-attacks. The authors from all fields working on these subjects are encouraged to submit a paper presenting their recent work, or a scientific discussion on the topic.
