Security of Healthcare Data - ASCLEPIOS Awareness Workshop

Secura is a member of the ASCLEPIOS project, in part funded by the European Commission as part of the H2020 program. ASCLEPIOS aims to address an important issue within the critical domain of healthcare: the efficient and granular access and storage of sensitive medical data whilst retaining the essential security and data protection requirements. For more information about the project please see:
Within the project, Secura is one of the main partners with respect to the technical development, analysis and testing of the proposed platform, GDPR compliance, and increasing the general awareness concerning the processing of medical data. In order to address the awareness improvement, Secura will conduct, within the context of ASCLEPIOS, periodic workshops dedicated to the protection of medical data.
