  • Cyber security partnerships: establishing partnerships between healthcare and organisations from the government and the private sector, such as the Australian Cyber Security Centre, to leverage shared experience and build cyber resilience
  • Securing digital health from the outset: implementing security into the design stage of national digital health systems, and supporting healthcare organisations to select secure IT products and services

Mark Smith

Senior Solutions Engineer

Cyber security experts are warning that due to reliance on remote services during the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia’s digital healthcare networks are not as secure as they should be.

IT data security has significantly changed to allow for access from remote sources which would previously be denied. Hear from industry leaders about how they are maintaining network security during a pandemic.

  • How challenging is to secure data when up to 90% of the workforce is working remotely?
  • What initiatives, training, tools and processes are being rolled out to respond to protect patient data?
  • How can big data and artificial intelligence be used to increase cyber resilience?
  • What are the benefits of having a unified and centralised voice in response to cyber security threats?
  • Why should health services collaborate rather than looking for individual solutions?
