EC funded project

The SecureHospitals.eu project seeks to raise awareness on risks and protection opportunities, setup training schemes and the initiate training sessions for IT staff working in hospitals. Through several training approaches, the project will boost the level of training in cybersecurity in Europe, improve the knowledge of staff and in turn contribute to decreased vulnerabilities against cyberthreats and increased patient trust and safety.

The online space created for the SecureHospitals.eu community of practice will bring together healthcare personnel, IT and cybersecurity experts, trainers, training organisation, decision makers at different levels, researcher, and solution providers with the aim of sharing information, materials and practices and growing stronger together.

  • aggregate all existing knowledge on cybersecurity in hospitals filtering the most relevant for the development of high-quality trainings supported by innovative e-approaches;
  • create tailor-made training materials for trainers and IT practitioners to ensure the effective uptake of knowledge on data protection and privacy and cybersecurity measures;
  • train the trainers and practitioners all over Europe using different online and on-site training methods targeting stakeholders at the European and the local level;
  • communicate training needs, developments of the training schemes, project training initiatives and further awareness raising on the online awareness and information hub.
