Protecting the healthcare sector from cyber harm

15:00 – 17:00 CEST

If the past year has taught us anything, it has to be that we need to protect the healthcare sector from cyberattacks. Between January and August 2021 alone, the CyberPeace Institute recorded 77 disruptive attacks on healthcare organizations, of which the majority resulted in operational disruptions to the sector. These have a direct human impact as people are unable to access healthcare services, a basic human right.  

The Czech Republic, the CyberPeace Institute, and Microsoft are taking action. Together, they kick-started the ‘Protecting the Healthcare Sector from Cyber Harm’ project which, over a series of thematic workshops, brings together healthcare, cybersecurity, and regulatory experts to identify good practices needed to protect this vital infrastructure. This is a multistakeholder issue that requires the attention of government, industry and civil society actors in order to come up with truly global solutions.

This event will explore challenges pertaining to, inter alia, accountability, state responsibility, due diligence, international human rights law, International Humanitarian Law, sovereignty and non-intervention as well as the use of force. It will explore existing initiatives and outcomes, including innovative recent ones such as the Oxford Process, with the aim of distilling good practices and recommendations, which we will endeavour to compile in a compendium to be published at the end of the workshop series.

Locked Shields 2021

The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) organises Exercise Locked Shields 2021, the largest and most complex international live-fire cyber defence exercise in the world. This year the exercise highlights the need of cyber defenders and strategic decision-makers to understand the numerous interdependencies between national IT systems.

In 2021 Exercise Locked Shields exercise is taking place on 13-16 April and will again highlight the increased need for a better functional understanding between various experts and decision-making levels. The importance and relevance of Locked Shields can be gauged from the range of cyber threats that are concerning nations, and the exercise will test their ability to protect vital services and critical infrastructure.

The organisers integrate both technical and strategic games, enabling participating nations to practice the entire chain of command in the event of a severe cyber incident. This includes strategic and operational level decision making and involves defending both civilian and military infrastructures and capabilities.

The annual real-time network defence exercise is a unique opportunity for national cyber defenders to practise protection of national IT systems and critical infrastructure under the pressure of a severe cyberattack.

Locked Shields 2021 is organised by CCDCOE in cooperation with NATO Communications and Information Agency, the Estonian Ministry of Defence, the Estonian Defence Forces, Siemens, Ericsson, TalTech, Foundation CR14, Bittium, Clarified Security, Arctic Security, Cisco, Stamus Networks, SpaceIT, Sentinel, the Financial Service Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), US Defense Innovation Unit, Microsoft, Atech, Avibras, SUTD iTrust Singapore, The European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats, NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence, European Defence Agency, Space ISAC, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), STM, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, NATO M&S COE and PaloAlto networks.
