GDHP Work streams

Cyber Security

Effective cyber security reduces the risk of cyber-attacks and protects organizations and individuals from the unauthorized exploitation of systems, networks, and technologies.

Cyber security has been defined by GDHP participants as, “The body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage, and unauthorized access.”

Proposed Global Digital Health Model Security Notice

The GDHP Cyber Security Workstream has developed a draft Global Digital Health Model Security Notice (MSN). When finalized, the Digital Health MSN will serve as an openly available resource to help health technology manufacturers and developers clearly convey information to their customers and users about their product’s security controls.

GDHP's Cyber Security Focus

The cyber security Work Stream focuses on strategies that can strengthen the processes and practices designed to protect healthcare related devices, systems, and networks, as well as the data within them, from security risks and cyber-attacks.
