3:30 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Responding to the Next Generation of Cyber Security Threats

Cyber security risks are increasing at all levels of government, industry and the community—including in the healthcare sector. It is no longer a case of ‘if’ but ‘when’ something will go wrong. Healthcare services must act now to minimize the impact of future cyber-attacks.

Bringing together leaders from Victoria’s public sector and healthcare industry, this panel discussion will discuss leading approaches to the next generation of cyber security threats.

  • From a health service level, what training can be provided to increase cyber security resilience and industry collaboration?
  • What initiatives, training, tools and processes are being rolled out, specifically to the state of Victoria to respond to the growing threat of cyber security? 
  • What are the key challenges standing in the way of achieving a coordinated response? What plans are there to achieve concrete coordination?
  • 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?
