Healthcare is increasingly evolving towards digitisation: from the development of electronic health records, of teleconsultation and tele-expertise is thriving and connected objects are on the rise. For this reason, it is evident that threats and potential damages to healthcare critical infrastructures due to cyberattacks require a fortification of the security features in the industry. Nowadays, healthcare structures are an attractive target for cybercrime because healthcare is a rich source of valuable data and its defences are weak.
PANACEA has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 826293 in order to enable healthcare facilities to assess the nature and severity of a threat, and sustainably decide to adopt strategies to strengthen their preparedness and response.
To increase the cyber security resilience of the IT infrastructure of hospitals and care centers facilities, PANACEA project will delivers people-centric cybersecurity solutions in healthcare by means of two toolkits for cyber security assessment and preparedness: the Solution Toolkit (made up of platforms, models, best practices, software applications) and the Delivery Toolkit (built on methodologies and implementation guidelines).
RINA will successfully combine its competencies in software engineering, cybersecurity, training, human factors and certification in a single multi-disciplinary team. These skills will be used in PANACEA to coordinate the technical activities dealing with:
Moreover, we are also responsible for PANACEA validation and covers the role of quality assurance manager, thanks to its higher engineering skills delivered in several decades of consultancy to private and public sector.
In conclusion, PANACEA will address the need to respond swiftly to a complex, multi-faceted cyber threat landscape, on the other hand, it will address the need for highly-skilled cybersecurity professionals to help reduce cyber risks in healthcare. In particular, the main positive impacts for the EU community will be:
