PANACEA Research will deliver two toolkits for cyber security assessment and preparedness of Healthcare ICT infrastructures and connected devices: the Solution Toolkit and the Delivery Toolkit.

1The Solution Toolkit will positively affect the cybersecurity of an Healthcare Centre (HCC) according to a holistic modality, assessing (and acting on) the physical, software and organisational/human components of the HCC, relevant for the cybersecurity.

  • a dynamic risk assessment & mitigation tool (helping to perform risk assessment evaluation and mitigation measures)
  • a secure information sharing tool for the protection of data
  • a security-by-design & certification tool
  • a tool for identification & authentication

  • a tool composed by models, guidelines and best practices for training & education
  • a tool aimed at resilience governance
  • a tool for secure behaviours nudging

How does the Solution Toolkit effectively interact with the Healthcare Center components?
The seven hexagons in the figure on the right, representing each component of the Solution Toolkit, can be implemented and used separately by the management and the security staff of the healthcare center.

  • The Healthcare Center network composed of operators, patients, citizens, security staff, medical doctors, nurses, top management, employees and administrative staff.
  • The clinical information systems and related processes (EHP, PHR)
  • The administrative information systems
  • The connected devices used in and outside of the hospital

The Solution Toolkit also manages the connections with other HCCs, even when this HCCs are not adopting PANACEA Research's solutions (these are represented on the right).
