Modern healthcare establishments are increasingly reliant upon information systems in all aspects of work and any compromise of their security may represent a significant threat to both the organisation and the patient. This paper discusses the increasing need for standardised levels of protection in healthcare computing systems and networks, outlining steps that have been taken to achieve this within European establishments. The paper then considers specific technical concepts that may be applied to improve security in healthcare at both local and international levels.
