Cybersecurity in Health – Tuesday 1st August

Cyber security: Some IT people think it is a business problem, some business people think it’s an IT problem. Any board Chairperson will tell you that when you’ve been hit, it’s a problem for both!

This workshop is specifically designed to bridge the gap between IT and Business to manage the risk of cyber security.

At this important event you will:

  • Meet key government and private sector experts
  • Hear best practice and ask questions to get immediate advice
  • Find out what has changed in the policy area and upskill yourself

The safety of your organisation and its clients depends on it.

Programme includes:

  • Who is trying to hack you?
  • What the future and new technologies will bring
  • You’ve been hacked! Recovery and remediation
  • What does an Incident Response Plan look like?

You will hear about the latest Government policies and tactics, developing an incident response plan, practical case studies, AI/machine learning, blockchain, cloud, mobile devices, IoT, and the pros/cons of outsourcing and insurance. 

Plus there will be lots of audience interaction – so you can ask questions and get expert answers.
