"In the world of digital transformation, data is the new gold and everyone wants to protect it. A special level of security is needed in the health sector because private data is the most sensitive type of data "said Mihailo Vesovic, Director of the Sector for Internationalization of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia at the seminar" Digital Transformation and Data Security - Japan's Experience in Personal Data Protection in Health System ".
Vesović pointed out that Serbia has done a lot in the digital transformation in the past decade, but further improvement is needed in the field of data protection. "We can learn a lot from the Japanese economy and markets and use their experience in using the most modern technologies," Vesović said.
"Digitization and data management have become even more important after the outbreak of the Covid19 pandemic. On the other hand, we must take care of data privacy, and that is why it is important to find adequate innovative solutions that will enable the development of digital healthcare. We are ready to transfer our experiences and knowledge in this field, "said Takahiko Katsumata, Ambassador of Japan to Serbia. He pointed out that the seminar was organized in line with the Western Balkan Cooperation Initiative launched by Japan in 2018. The Initiative supports activities aimed at the development of the economies of the Western Balkans and the integration of this region into the EU.
"We want to unify digital processes through various services and technologies to this market that are already being used in the world and are designed to enable safe use of data to end-users. This is our most important goal," said Mrazovac.
The seminar "Digital Transformation and Data Security - Japan's Experience in Personal Data Security in the Health System" was organized by the CCIS in cooperation with NTT Data, the Embassy of Japan, the Japan Foreign Trade Organization and the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
