SEISMED: secure environment for information systems in medicine

The project has resulted in a comprehensive set of practical data security guidelines for European health care establishments which are supported by extensive analytical reports into the attitude and culture of health information security, the risks involved in the protection of health data and the legal aspects surrounding its protection. The complete set of guidelines and technical reports produced by the project have recently been published and investigations have taken place into producing prototype software to accompany the guidelines and aid their implementation.
