Are our health data secure?

History repeats itself, the health data of 1.4 million French people were stolen during the summer after a new security breach exposing the results of PCR tests of 700,000 people on the Net. Should we be concerned about the security of our data? What are the victims at risk? Elements of response with our guest, Bernard Benhamou, Secretary General of the Institute of Digital Sovereignty.

The attack took place in the middle of summer but was confirmed only a few days ago: hackers stole from the Assistance publique – Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) the personal data of 1.4 million of patients who tested for Covid-19 in mid-2020. A cyberattack that follows the online dissemination of the results of screening tests of 700,000 people. In question, a flaw in the security of third-party software.

Why are hackers interested in this kind of data? How valuable is access to this information? # Tech24 asks Bernard Benhamou, Secretary General of the Institute for Digital Sovereignty and former interministerial delegate for digital uses.

This is a record for the tech sector in France. The Parisian company Sorare has just raised 580 million euros, placing it in first place among French “unicorns”, these start-ups which have exceeded one billion dollars in valuation. This fundraising confirms the appeal of the Sorare application, an online game combining a collection of Panini stickers and stock market transactions and based on NFT (non-fungible tokens) technology. Decryption of the phenomenon with Guillaume Grallet, journalist specializing in new technologies for the weekly Le Point.
