Cyber-Resilience in Medical Applications


Modern IT-systems are increasingly complex and interconnected, posing greater risks of faults and breakdowns. Protecting these systems and enhancing their resilience is crucial, especially in critical areas like healthcare.

Project Content

While traditional IT security focuses on protection against attacks, cyber-resilience encompasses foreseeing system failures and reacting adaptively. Resilient systems can function under diverse conditions, making them more robust. Despite its importance, cyber-resilience is underrepresented in software development and training. To address this gap, a boot camp training on cyber-resilience, with a focus on healthcare, is developed. It covers resilient design, implementation tools, and is adaptable to other sectors.


The project aims to meet the rising demand for cyber-resilience expertise, particularly in healthcare, by offering a boot camp training. Participants will gain competences in developing and operating resilient IT-systems, including basic IT security concepts, cyber-resilience principles, medical software basics, and risk assessment techniques.


The boot camp training follows accelerated learning principles and is organized into teaching blocks. It integrates knowledge from a previous data science boot camp. The training consists of five phases: Introduction, Deepening Concepts, Resilience by Design, Practical Application, and Testing Methods. Participants engage in practical projects to apply acquired skills. The training concludes with an evaluation phase.
