Data-protection toolkit reducing risks in hospitals and care centers

Project description

'Shielding' healthcare organisations against cyberattacks

Cybersecurity is a challenge for healthcare, an essential service that uses a vast amount of sensitive personal data. The average healthcare organisation spends more than EUR 1 million to recover from an attack. A rise in cybersecurity breaches in healthcare organisations is compromising patient privacy and posing a danger to patient safety. For instance, the use of wireless medical devices may be hacked by cybercriminals to harm a patient. The EU-funded ProTego project will develop a toolkit for healthcare organisations to better assess and reduce cybersecurity risks related to remote devices’ access to electronic health record data. It will introduce three main advances over current approaches: extensive use of machine intelligence, advanced data protection measures and innovation protocols for stakeholder education.
