Abstract

The increasing interconnection of technology in healthcare between devices at the physical and cyber levels has transformed these infrastructures into large Health Care Information Infrastructures. Such HCIIs are considered critical and sensitive infrastructures due to their importance for people's well-being and safety. On the other hand, the evolving digital interconnectivity has also changed the threat landscape, producing a wide range of security and privacy challenges and increasing the danger of potential cybersecurity attacks. The integrated nature introduces new potential entry points for cybersecurity risks. Thus, there is an urgent, pressing need for the Health operators to protect their HCIIs. Efficient situational awareness, incident handling and risk assessment is an important step to acquiring a thorough and common understanding of cyber-attack situations, and is necessary to timely reveal security events and data breaches occurring into HCIIs. Consequently, analysis of incident information is crucial in attempting to detect the presence of a threat, within HCIIs, that has already been detected in other interdependent systems within the same ecosystem.
