In just over 18-months cyber security has emerged as one of the most complex challenges in the digital health sector. Cyber security is first a clear demonstrable threat to the ability of NHS organisations to routinely deliver safe patient care – over a third of all trusts had services disrupted by Wannacry.
The challenge is how to secure the staff, data, applications and medical devices required to deliver our increasingly complex digitised healthcare system?
There will continue to be breaches but how can health IT professionals learn from the experience of their peers and counterparts from other industries. Organisations that fail to do so face huge reputational and economic costs.
Digital Health has provided a hub dedicated to coverage of Cyber Security since May 2016.
The Rewired Cyber Security Zone builds on Digital Health’s two successful Cyber Security Summits and will focus on sharing real-world lessons and best practice.
