International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Healthcare (SPH)

The workshop is organized and supported by the CUREX H2020 project.



With the rise of new types of cyber-crimes and digital healthcare infrastructures and platforms being universally recognised as Critical Information Infrastructure, healthcare organisations have begun to realise the necessity to prepare against these challenges. This calls for the effective preparation of organisations in an ever-evolving cyber-attack landscape. In this workshop, we invite high-quality submissions in the areas of security and privacy in the healthcare sector and other related topics. Submitted papers should highlight methods and approaches that can be used to analyse the security risks and requirements, highlight the security threats in the area of Healthcare and to provide novel methods and approaches to assure security, safeguard patient privacy and increase patient trust in the currently vulnerable critical healthcare information infrastructures.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Security and Privacy Policies
