Secure Future Strategies for Hospitals in a Live Interview on May 12th!
For five days, the entire IT of the Lukaskrankenhaus was paralyzed in February 2016. A computer virus entered the system via an attachment in an e-mail. Firewall and antivirus programs were unable to stop the ransomware. As a result, all IT systems were shut down to prevent the virus from spreading further. Over 800 end devices, servers and storage components were affected. Digital transmissions of findings from the laboratory and radiology were no longer possible. The medical care of all patients, however, was not affected. A new security system was then set up over a period of months.
Dr. Klaus-Uwe Höffgen, Chief Digital Officer, Rheinland Klinikum Neuss, will report on the long-term consequences of the cyber attack on May 12th. The live interview will focus on cybersecurity and solutions for hospitals in connection with the “Hospital Future Act”.

Cybersecurity Requirements in the Advance of Digitalization
The healthcare sector is currently undergoing a transformation process, and the opportunities presented by digitization are far-reaching. The biggest threat to hospitals: Cybercrime and the corresponding need for data security. Dr. Höffgen will explain security risks and solutions in a live interview on May 12th.
Hospitals face numerous challenges when digitized processes fail. A hospital alone cannot always ensure this data security. For smaller medical facilities in particular, this means that cybersecurity services must be purchased externally to safeguard end-to-end operations and thus patient care. Dr. Höffgen will explain possible approaches to this problem.
Security Strategy and the “Hospital Future Act”
The “Hospital Future Act”, which came into force in October 2020, provides for investments in hospitals with the help of subsidies totaling 4.3 billion euros. "We have to approach this strategically," explains Dr. Höffgen. "The fact that digitization is becoming more of a focus means that we also have to pay attention to the security issue – in my view, you cannot separate the two. Both aspects must be further developed and brought forward in harmony."
