In today’s electronic world, healthcare cybersecurity and information protection are vital to the normal functioning of organizations. Many healthcare organizations have various types of specialized hospital information systems, and in addition, thousands of devices comprising the Internet of Things must also be protected. With the goal of shielding hospital structures and health centers, the “CyberCare” project aspires to meet the specialized security needs of this sector.
The CyberCare project aims to design, research and develop an innovative cyber security system for connected medical devices and healthcare networks that are vulnerable to cyber attacks. The usefulness of the CyberCare solution will be proven and validated through the pilot program of HOPE GENESIS which concerns the comprehensive care of pregnant women in remote areas of Greece. The comprehensive remote pregnancy care program includes the provision of three medical devices (a blood pressure monitor, a glucose monitor, and a cardiotocograph) that send the recording data to the supervising physicians via Bluetooth.
