Youth aid organizations completed a major step in the past year in the digitization of assistance Especially during the corona pandemic, e-health has developed more rapidly and more youth care treatments are taking place online. In addition to extra options, this also applies to risks.
“We have seen that current cyber threats such as ransomware do not reach the large organizations in the healthcare sector,” said Wim Hafkamp, director of Z-CERT. “All healthcare organizations, large and small, cure and care, can get involved with cybercrime. Z-CERT presents problems for preventing and creating incidents and thus making them more resilient.”
It is important to share information about management and cybersecurity within the healthcare sector. If hackers focus their pillars on healthcare applications of commonly used applications in healthcare, Z-CERT will inform all institutions involved.
Robert van Someren, ICT/IV director of Youth Care Netherlands, is delighted with the connection. As a trade association, we would like to support the youth sector in the field of information security. One of the components of our information security program is the collaboration with Z-CERT. We are pleased that we are offering our members the opportunity to connect to the services of Z-CERT with the care being made digitally safer.”
