The revised version of the “Catalog of measures to improve IT security in Bavarian hospitals” has been published. With its concrete recommendations for action, the research project “Smart Hospitals – Safe Digitization of Bavarian Hospitals” aims to improve safety in Bavarian hospitals.

Most of the 40 or so protective measures presented in the document are at a technical level. These include recommendations for securing data networks, data centers and large medical devices. The catalog also gives tips on the organizational level: For example, how to increase employee awareness or how to create emergency concepts and recovery plans. The entire package of measures can be seen in the free document online remove.

Completely new in the revised version of the document that has now been published are notes on the areas of cloud computing and security in the area of ​​teleworking and bring-your-own-device models. Document templates for IT security management have also been added in the appendix to the catalog of measures, which clinics can individualize and then take over directly.

The catalog of measures could serve as “a guide for good and practicable IT protection in hospitals”, says the press release for the publication of the document. The linguistic preparation is particularly important: the individual measures are deliberately presented briefly and in a reader-friendly manner – most of the suggestions only extend over two pages. Thanks to references to further literature, the required depth is still guaranteed, it says.

The Smart Hospitals project is part of the CODE research institute of the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich and is funded by the Bavarian Ministry of Health, among others. The team published a catalog of measures last year, which it has now expanded once again. The recently passed IT Security Act 2.0 presented German clinics with new security tasks. Last year, the ransomware attack with the malware “DoppelPaymer” plagued the Düsseldorf university clinic.
