CIPSEC in Health
Barcelona, September 22th
The healthcare field is becoming every year more technological dependent for its daily practice in order to give more efficient and secure services. In order to do so, health professionals related to highly technified areas strongly depend on IT and OT systems, managing thousands of devices and many different networks with high low-latency constraints, controls at different levels and strong privacy requirements on the collected and processed data.
Guaranteeing and maintaining security to hospital infrastructures and also privacy to patients’ information and procedures while (i) simultaneously providing fast and accurate decisions and (ii) allowing the possibility of introducing new developments/solutions already available on the market (or purely non-commercial customized ones) with enough agility is on the top rank of actions required to successfully support professionals’ activities, particularly nowadays when the smart connected products and the Internet-of-Things are transforming the medical device industry and enabling manufacturers to contend with grooving competition for service business, provide new home care solutions and ensure compliance with strict regulatory requirements.
The Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, as one of the most recognized and representative largest public tertiary university hospitals in Spain and in the EU, will provide 3 different scenarios representing the most significant challenges in typical OT hospital system extended with some new real in-site cutting edge prototype solutions based in the IoT technologies that can exemplify the most immediate challenges to be faced in the coming years. Within CIPSEC, the Hospital Clinic aims at finding solutions and services which can fulfill the most urgent cyber-security necessities and threats.
