The Hermeneut Consortium is pleased to invite you to our first Cyber-Policy Lab, where we will be examining EU healthcare’s cyberrisk.

Hermeneut focuses on creating a holistic, dynamic cybersecurity risk assessment model and approach to cost-benefit analysis that starts from an integrated assessment of vulnerabilities of organisations; exploits an innovative macro- and microeconomic model to estimate consequences of cyberattacks for intangible costs; ends with a cybersecurity risk assessment of tangible and intangible assets for an organisation or a business sector; and will be followed by guidelines able to support decisions related to cybersecurity investments on hard and soft measures to mitigate the loss of an enterprise’s integrity.

Hermeneut partners are aiming to engage EU policymakers and sectoral stakeholders in a series of ‘Cyber-Policy Labs’ in order to give visibility to the research and examine new policy approaches to cyber-risk in sectoral environments.
This first Cyber-Policy lab, hosted by the European Organisation for Security (EOS) in Brussels, will be dedicated to discussing how the Hermeneut project’s cybersecurity cost-benefit approach to risk assessment in healthcare can help strengthen the current EU cybersecurity policy environment, and garner further perspectives and policy insights from the health care sector and EU policymakers. The goal is the creation of an open forum in which the attendees generate most of the discussion and knowledge sharing.


The Policy Workshop on Cyberrisk in the Healthcare sector is organised by the European Organisation for Security and will be held at Brussels EOS Office in Rue Montoyer 10 on Wednesday, 30 January 2019 (h. 8:30-13:15).
Breakfast will be served during registration at 8:30am, and participants are invited to join a networking lunch following the Cyber-Policy Lab at 12:15 (detailed agenda to follow).
For any additional information or question, and to confirm your participation, please contact by Friday, 25 January 2019.
We look forward to seeing you in Brussels!
