The Cybersecurity & Health” conference will look at today’s major cybersecurity issues with scientific keynotes, panels of experts and networking addressing data anonymisation, cloud security, personal data protection and specificities of healthcare IT systems, security of connected medical devices and biomedical equipment, telemedicine.
