The decentralized storage of health data on cloud servers has great advantages for both manufacturers of networked medical products and hospitals. Technically, there are no limits here due to high computing and connection speeds as well as almost unlimited storage capacities.
Health data is particularly worth protecting from the point of view of the legislator. In addition, data are generally exposed to particular risks when stored on the Internet. This results in special requirements with regard to data protection and data security.
In our workshop, our experts will discuss which legal and technical requirements you must comply with when storing health data on cloud servers.


Program language will be German. A German program is available, too.
