SPHINX 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.

Hospitals and Care Centres are prime targets of cyber criminals, especially concerning data theft, ransomware, man-in-the-middle and phishing. This reflects the need of Healthcare Institutions for a Holistic Cyber Security vulnerability assessment toolkit, that will be able to proactively assess and mitigate cyber-security threats known or unknown, imposed by devices and services within a corporate ecosystem.

SPHINX aims to introduce a Universal Cyber Security Toolkit, thus enhancing the cyber protection of Health IT Ecosystem and ensuring the patient data privacy and integrity. It will also provide an automated zero-touch device and service verification toolkit that will be easily adapted or embedded on existing, medical, clinical or health available infrastructures.

The SPHINX Toolkit will be validated through pan-European demonstrations in three different scenarios at 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.
