Cybersecurity in Healthcare Organisations is a complex issue, due to the convergence of many structural and regulatory challenges. The attack surface is wide and dynamic because of the multiplicity of connected endpoints, increasing digitalisation, many non-secure legacy medical devices and increasing levels of inter-organisational data sharing. With the advent of COVID-19, cybersecurity has amplified and made manifest risky situations for healthcare organisations (such as smart-working and telemedicine). What's more, in the healthcare sector, more than any other industry, cyber-attacks have strong repercussions on both financial and social aspects, as they also impact patients’ data privacy, their safety and quality of care. Cybersecurity is thus an essential part of a high-quality healthcare service and not an obstacle limiting the performance of healthcare operations.
To overcome cybersecurity challenges, PANACEA offers a portfolio of Tools and expertise that combines technological, risk governance measures and human behavioural aspects into an integrated solution. The holistic and customisable approach adopted includes tools for:
Validation with three European Healthcare Organisations (HSOs) and four medical device/system developers has shown the usability and the added value brought by the PANACEA Toolkit as an integrated solution to build cybersecurity capability and resilience. It offers healthcare organisations a strong and unique portfolio of solutions and expertise, tailored to cope with very specific challenges in healthcare.
PANACEA has published a white paper to present the benefits brought by its Toolkit.
