NÚKIB and its partners introduce the outcomes of an international project

The rising number of cyber attacks and threats against the healthcare sector remains the worriyng trend of recent years. The situation has gotten worse since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. More needs to be done to protect this critical sector to avoid potentially devastating humanitarian consequences.

That’s why in 2021, NUKIB, Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the CyberPeace Institute, and Microsoft partnered to run a series of workshops with foreign and domestic experts and practitioners to openly discuss the challenges the sector face, and to come up with potential solutions from legal, technical, operational and even diplomatic perspective.

We are proud to share their recommendations in a single, comprehensive document: Compendium of Multistakeholder Perspectives: Protecting the Healthcare Sector from Cyber Harm. This report provides insights and best practices ranging from how to better secure hospital IT systems to the need to implement international law and norms. Together, these multistakeholder perspectives present ways in which we can all contribute to strengthen the protection and resilience of this vital sector and improve its cyber security for the years ahead.
