CYLCOMED project kicked off on 12-13 December in Madrid, Spain with the aim of developing a new cybersecurity framework for healthcare sectors that rely on connected medical devices (CMDs).
The project, which has received funding from the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, brings together a strong consortium of researchers, healthcare and technology providers from seven European countries.
The CYLCOMED project aims to provide a toolbox that allows users to avoid and prevent cyber-risks in the CMDs ecosystem. The consortium brings together business know-how, social sciences, and deep technical insights in cybersecurity and data protection solutions to address this critical issue.
The kick-off meeting of the CYLCOMED project was held on 12-13 December 2022, where the consortium partners discussed their roles and responsibilities in the project. The 10 partners in the consortium include Atos Spain, Atos IT Solutions and Services Iberia, MediaClinics Italia, Martel GmbH (Switzerland), XLAB (Slovenia), Charité – Universitaetsmedizin Berlin, Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica Hospital Infantil Universitario Niño Jesús (Spain), Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesú (Italy), RGB Medical Devices (Spain), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Netherlands) and Inov Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores (Portugal). The CYLCOMED project is an important step in boosting cybersecurity for connected medical devices and ensuring the safety and privacy of patients. With the support of Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, the consortium aims to make significant progress in developing a robust cybersecurity framework for healthcare
