A Universal Cyber Security Toolkit for the Health - Care Industry
Welcome to the SPHINX newsletter, the first in a series that will be published periodically to keep you updated about SPHINX's important news, results and further steps.
SPHINX project is a 36-month European project, founded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme and aims to introduce a health tailored Universal Cyber Security Toolkit, thus enhancing the cyber protection of the Health and Care IT Ecosystem and ensuring patients’ data privacy and integrity.
The SPHINX solution will be validated through pan-European demonstrations in real-life conditions, in three different scenarios and at three different countries (Romania, Portugal and Greece). Hospitals, care centres and device manufacturers participating in the project’s pilots will deploy and evaluate the solution at business as usual and emergency situations across various use case scenarios.
