Source: Federal Office for Information Security Date December 18, 2020 The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) will conduct an online survey among providers of health apps as part of a market observation until January 4, 2021. Surveys are included in the consideration of the security properties of health apps currently available on the German market. Based on the survey, the BSI intends to develop specific support offers for providers and consumers, with a focus on apps that are not medical devices under the Medical Devices Act or are not already listed in the directory of digital health applications (DiGa directory). The survey is aimed at developers and providers of health apps on the German market. The survey ends on January 4, 2021 and is available in both German and English. The survey is completely anonymous and without naming the specific product. The time required is around a quarter of an hour. The questions are mostly technical. The online survey and further information can be found here. If you have any questions, please email the BSI at
