Cyberwatching.eu aims to improve the impact of the results of research and innovation projects in the European Union and Associated Countries, and to achieve this, the overall cyberwatching.eu methodology is founded on the following 3 macro activities: 1) Clustering & synergising; 2) Engaging; 3) Supporting. Each macro-activity, at an operational level, translates effectively into a series of tasks, executed utilising some specific tools and levers. Detailed information about this process can be read in the D2.3 Methodology for Classification and Marker Readiness.
As a follow-up of the virtual meetings held last July 2020, Cyberwatching.eu has supported collaboration and mini-clusters between R&I projects focusing on cybersecurity solutions and best practices in vertical sectors and horizontal topics.
The topic of this joint webinar was security and privacy by design for the healthcare sector. Three projects presenting their solutions: DEFEND, PANACEA and PAPAYA. The webinar also showed the strength and depth of work being carried out by these R&I projects in providing solutions that have security and privacy by design at the very core of them. At a time when health systems are at full-stretch to deal with the current COVID-19 pandemic, and researchers are collaborating together to create and provide new vaccines, the webinar demonstrated the value of alignment and collaboration between R&I projects in the field of cybersecurity and privacy to support health organisations and manufacturers of medical devices to be able to provide resilient and trusted services.
Read this short post-webinar highlightning very useful insights on the main challenges facing the medical sector in ensuring secure integration of services that comply with EU regulations. In order to tackle these challenges, three cutting-edge security and privacy-by-design solutions from three Horizon 2020 projects were presented.
