The Role of Cyber Security in the Technology Transfer of eHealth Applications

Luminița CRĂCIUN


The major changes in the field of health, determined by the evolution of the digital world, but also by other social factors (Covid-19 pandemic, the Russian-Ukrainian war, the increase in the incidence of drugs and car accidents, etc.) or natural factors (cataclysms) generate the need for a rapid technological transfer between eHealth software developers and healthcare professionals. The European Commission for Health constantly carries out studies to present the situation of digitization of the medical field in EU member countries, also proposing measures for those in which the pace of implementation of IT solutions is slower. In addition to this situation, the Commission emphasizes that it is necessary to take the the appropriate measures to avoid risks and protect personal data from cyber attacks and threats by ill-wishers, which can make it difficult to perform the medical act. This article highlights the fact that eHealth applications can be protected from attacks like phishing, ransomware, DDoS, malware, etc. if the technological transfer confirms the inclusion of cyber protection measures in the new product or if it is done with the help of blockchain technology.
