Japanese IT company Fujitsu has announced that its Spanish branch has signed a general action protocol agreement with the regional government of Andalusia.

Under this institutional cooperation framework, Fujitsu Spain will work together with Andalusian government to promote new efforts at the Andalusian Cybersecurity Center in Malaga.

This centre primarily focuses on the design and development of sophisticated strategies and practices that can help in structuring action plans in the Andalusian social and healthcare ecosystem.

Fujitsu Spain’s new initiatives will be related to cybersecurity in the healthcare domain, specifically the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) at a national and global level.

The IT company said it will be provided access to different devices and applications to support the provision of socio-health services for ethical hacking and simulations.

This will help in pinpointing and evaluating the vulnerabilities and potential cyber risks in Andalusia’s healthcare systems.

Besides, Fujitsu Spain and the local government are planning to collaborate with the University of Malaga to deliver training courses for medical students along with training and certification programmes for students in the cybersecurity field.

Fujitsu Spain president Ángeles Delgado said: “We will work to develop a strategy that will enable a modern and promising future in an Andalusian hospital environment, especially by working in an initial phase on devices and applications that connect with healthcare and telecare IT systems through online computer networks, the so-called IoMT.”

The latest effort is also in line with the government’s Governing Council of the Andalusian Cybersecurity Strategy 2022-2025.

In future, this framework will also be implemented across other public entities in Andalusia, including the City Council and the University of Malaga, Andalusian Health Service, and the Agency for Social Services and Dependency.

Andalusia’s presidency, interior, social dialogue and administrative simplification minister Antonio Sanz said: “The objective of this agreement is to promote strategies and actions around socio-health cybersecurity in Andalusia from the new Cybersecurity Center in Malaga.

“Furthermore, these types of public-private alliances are more necessary today than ever in the face of an increase in online threats.”
