The high-level meeting of the research centre Cyber Defence (CODE) hosted discussions on current cyber challenges in IoT, eHealth, privacy, and industry 4.0 with key representatives of the German government and industry, including Secretary of State Dr Katrin Suder (BMVG) and Klus Vitt (BMI).

An eHealth session presented by ENISA focused on a real use case in a German hospital. The specific constraints and benefits of using cloud computing in the healthcare environment were discussed in a panel - moderated by the Head of Secure Infrastructures and Services Dr E. Ouzounis (ENISA) - together with panellists from the public and private sector, including Ing. Gerald Götz (Munich Municipal Hospital), Bernd Kowalski (BSI), Marcus Neumann (Capnopy), and Carlos Arglebe (Siemens). NIS expert, Dimitra Liveri (ENISA), gave an overview on issues related to accessibility, sharing and storage of information, availability and reliability, geo-boundaries, and the particularities of healthcare as a critical information infrastructure.

ENISA's Executive Director moderated discussion panels during the two-day event. Udo Helmbrecht said: “The annual meeting organised by the Unversity of Bundeswehr is an excellent opportunity to discuss on trending topics looking into how we can take the next step in a connected world while being securely connected during any online activity. The uptake of digitisation of industry sees many applications in critical infrastructures – from smart transport to eHealth - but foremost requires trust. ENISA through its studies in these areas, promotes standardisation, privacy by design and interoperability, for secure systems and infrastructures benefiting EU industry and citizens”.

Udo Helmbrecht, is an Honorary Professor at the Bundeswehr University.
