GDPR and cybersecurity in healthcare
25 May 2021 - 9:30 am - 3:00 pm CEST
The conference “GDPR and cybersecurity in healthcare“, which will take place on May 25, 2021, 9:15 – 15:00 (CET), is organised as part of the “GDPR in Health” cycle, which is the largest event regarding the protection of medical data in Poland, bringing together the largest, most important industry organisations, as well as representatives of the public sector.
The aim of the conference is to create a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience related to the application of the GDPR in the medical sector and good practices in the field of data security, coordinating activities and initiatives related to the protection of personal data and cybersecurity standards in the medical sector, as well as increasing the awareness of patients and healthcare personnel in the scope of personal data protection.
During the Conference, the “Code of Conduct for the healthcare sector” will be presented in detail, which on February 23, 2021 received a positive opinion from the President of the Personal Data Protection Office. The use of the approved code of conduct by entities performing medical activities will help fulfil some of the obligations arising from the GDPR. The industry code for the healthcare sector is an unprecedented success, as it has led to the development of a common position by the medical industry in Poland representing various facilities, regardless of their ownership structure or the type of medical services provided. This code is therefore one of the most important achievements of the Polish healthcare sector in the field of personal data protection, being a kind of showcase of Poland.
In addition, during the Conference, issues related to the security of medical data in a digital environment will be presented. The conference is aimed at representatives of medical facilities responsible for data processing and cybersecurity in these facilities.
Due to the epidemic situation, the conference will be online. Participation in the conference will be free of charge.
The conference is organised by the Polish Hospital Federation, while the legal partnership of the DZP Law Firm.
