Colloquium on cybersecurity in the health sector

28th April 2023 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Europe/Rome Timezone

Emerging challenges and priorities surrounding the digital transformation of health and care

Organised by Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies – CJC: Centre for Judicial Cooperation and
Warsaw University of Technology

Join this workshop that will sketch the research questions that are at the crossroad between data protection, product liability, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

The digitalisation of the health sector is an ongoing phenomenon, which was only accelerated by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemics. Already in 2018, the European Commission addressed the priorities emerging in the digital transformation of health and care, identifying, first, the need to secure citizens’ access to their health data (including across borders); secondly, the crucial importance of personalised medicine through shared European data infrastructure; and third the potential for citizen empowerment with digital tools for user feedback and person-centred care.

Although the path seems set, the challenges emerging in this framework are several, in particular when looking at the cybersecurity of health devices, being them either medical devices or more general Internte of Things (IoT) tools, which still collect data about users’ health.
