SPHINX Consortium member DYPE5, the fifth Greek Regional Health Authority, hosted a workshop that was dedicated to IT personnel of Healthcare organisations in order to raise their awareness regarding contemporary cybersecurity matters.

The workshop took place virtually in Wednesday, 16 December 2020 and partners from National Technical University of Greece, PDMFC and ViLabs contributed to the event with presentations about information security, risk management, necessary daily actions for a cyber secure routine, firewalls concepts and the Sphinx Toolkit. These presentations were delivered in three sessions.

What is more, Mrs. Dimitra Livery, Network and Information Security expert of ENISA, gave a keynote speech on procurement guidelines for cybersecurity in hospitals and medical centers.

The event gathered more than 100 attendees from several Healthcare Organisations, mainly from Greece, and from other countries of Consortium Members such as Portugal. The audience consisted of IT professionals, middle and high-level managers of IT departments, thus allowing the project to engage with an audience of potential end-users.

The CYBERAWARE4HEALTH was hosted as an initial part of a series of workshops envisioned under WP7 of SPHINX project, in order to increase the awareness status for cybersecurity issues in healthcare IT ecosystems and specifically among staff both in health delivery and administrative lines of work.

After the completion on the workshop, an anonymous questionnaire was shared to the attendees as an optional request to participate in a survey in the context of the project and receive a Certificate of Attendance.
