critical Infrastructures

Hospitals are indispensable institutions for public healthcare and part of society’s critical infrastructures. The increasing use of information technology and networks creates new dependencies and risks that could affect medical service availability. A systematic analysis of risks associated with IT will help to determine the risks for critical processes caused by IT disruptions or failures.
This paper outlines a practical risk analysis approach with focus on the risks associated with the dependency on hospital IT. The method was developed within the project “Risk analysis hospital IT” (”Risikoanalyse Krankenhaus-IT” - RiKrIT) launched by the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology (BSI), the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK), the Senate Department for Health, Environment and Consumer Protection of the State of Berlin, and the Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin (ukb).
