Reijo Savola, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland



Cybersecurity for e-Health applications is a challenge arising due to the novelty and openness of the solutions. Systematically defined and managed security metrics enable higher effectiveness of security controls. We analyze the cybersecurity risks e-Health applications for elderly persons’ day-to-day support and chronic disease self-care. Potential and limitations of possible security metrics and measurements approaches taking into account these risks are presented. Finally, future research directions are discussed.
