The Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Ulrich Kelber, has announced that he will take even greater care to protect health data in the future. With the 67 new positions that his authority will receive next year, he "will definitely strengthen our two units, which focus on health and telematics applications," Kelber told the "Tagesspiegel" (Monday edition). The vulnerabilities in hospitals and other health facilities are worrying.
The goal must be to "massively push down the number of such threats," said Kelber. ()
