INFOPOLE together with MyDataTrust in the context of the H2020 DigiBCube project organised a GDPR and Cybersecurity workshop, on the 16th of November 2021.

SMEs of the ICT and Medical diagnostics domains from everywhere in EU and associated countries were invited to participate.  

The goal of this workshop was to support SMEs with the GDPR, Data Protection and Cybersecurity issues they are facing. Help SMEs understand how to efficiently protect their patients’ data and make sure that they avoid data breaches and fines. 

The workshop took place virtually and was divided into two parts. In the morning, the first part aimed at providing a general overview of the General Data Protection Regulation, more commonly known as the GDPR. As well as providing some good practices, methods and guidelines on enhancing Cybersecurity of systems in their organisation and be better prepared for cyberattacks. In the second part of the workshop, that took place in the afternoon, the SMEs had the opportunity to book one-to-one  0min long consultations with the experts. During these customised discussions the SMEs brought forward and receive advice and consultation on more specialized, or confidential topics, on data protection and cybersecurity.

 

GDPR

The goal of this first part is to give you a general overview of the General Data Protection Regulation, more commonly known as the GDPR.

What is the GDPR? You might have heard a lot about GDPR in the last few years and this makes sense, as this is the legal instrument framing the processing of personal data across Europe since its entry into force the 25 May 2018.  The idea of this Regulation is to harmonize national regulations in the European Union, in order to ensure an equivalent level of data protection, allow the free flow of personal data in the European Union and finally hold all actors of the processing accountable.

This first part will help you to understand the GDPR and give you the key to efficiently put it in place.

 

Cybersecurity

This second part of the workshop will give you an overview of the 3 different part of the Web in order to better understand the environment and then be able to better protect yourself. You probably also wonder how and why hackers get your data? How your data ends up on the dark web? What are the different methods of attack they might use? We will go through all these questions together and finally end with some defensive tips on how to keep yourself safe from cyberattacks.
