How European funded research can boost cyber resilience of hospitals

Hospitals are becoming the frequent target of cyber-attacks, with very serious consequences in terms both of data leakage, and, even more, of business continuity. The time has come to learn lessons from attacks, plan and invest in implementing effective full spectrum mitigation measures, leveraging results from European funded research to better prepare healthcare organisations in 2022 to improve preparedness in the face of new attacks.

HSE cyber-attack: a wake-up call for hospitals right across Europe poster

Curex, Panacea and Sphinx projects

The webinar "HSE cyber-attack: a wake-up call for hospitals right across Europe. How European funded research can boost your cyber resilience in 2022" is jointly organised by three European projects: CUREX, PANACEA and SPHINX.

Participants will get:

  • A first-hand narration of the recent (14 May 2021) cyber-attack on the Health Service Executive (HSE) of Ireland from HSE officials that have dealt with the recovery phase.
  • An overview of the European Commission actions for cybersecurity in the healthcare sector.
  • An update on the most recent perspectives on healthcare cybersecurity from the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA).
  • Insights into the solutions developed by the three projects: software, methodologies, education kits, organizational guidelines tailored on the healthcare environment.
  • Examples of how these solutions could have helped tackle the HSE cyber-attack, in terms avoiding it and improving business continuity and recovery decisions.
  • Practical information about accessing and using these solutions.
  • Managerial insights into how to use the solutions, with the opportunity to take part in question and answers. 

You can find information on the three projects and their results on their websites:
