Cyber Security and Healthcare Systems

Forum panel – 75mn

The rapid global adoption of emerging technologies in healthcare in recent years has led to increased vulnerability to cyber threats capable of compromising patient safety data confidentiality and eroding patient trust. In recent years, and particularly since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of cyber-attacks has risen globally. Yet healthcare systems and organizations around the world are lagging behind other sectors in developing cyber readiness. 

The Cybersecurity and Healthcare Systems panel forum will review how digital solutions have the potential to revolutionize healthcare and improve the health of people around the globe, while mitigating the accompanying risk of cyber threats.
