Ethics underpins our actions and influences the way organisations operate - no more so than during a crisis. Watch as we learn how the Swedish healthcare system developed greater resilience in the face of the biggest health challenge in a century; and the importance of ethics in achieving this.
Martin Smith MBE and Adam Wild welcome and introduce the day, followed by the opening keynote where Phil Huggins and John Noble CBE give a summary preview of the cybersecurity strategy for health and social care to be published in April 2022. They also describe the important new cybersecurity guide developed and published for NEDs of NHS trusts that is relevant to many other organisations.
Dr Will Priestley shares some of the best practices on working with the toolkit. We discuss why health services need the DSPT and what ambitions you should have in using it to your benefit, the 10 Data Security Standards and how to tackle them, and how to demonstrate you are achieving and sustaining these standards.
Adenike Cosgrove gives us an insight into the incidents taking place in the healthcare sector at the moment, together with some genuinely useful hints and tips on what we should all be considering to be more secure.
Maintaining robust cybersecurity is a challenge, and although new digital technologies and ever-larger quantities of data provide opportunities to improve health and care, they also present enormous risks in protecting data and maintaining safety, privacy and trust of patients. Dr Saira Ghafur provides valuable insights into the steps organisations can take to improve their cybersecurity and resilience, details the latest resources and support available from Government and NHS agencies, and highlights global research initiatives.
Dr Saif Abed explores how to translate technical cybersecurity data, such as network telemetry and vulnerability intelligence, into useful real-time patient safety and clinical risk metrics that can drive decision making at the executive management level, from the hospital setting to Government. He also shares his experience as a medical doctor and cybersecurity expert analysing frontline risks and his organisation’s latest methodologies for qualitative and quantitative risk analysis.
Infrastructure and budget challenges mean national healthcare is constantly at risk of attack – which if successful could have a catastrophic impact on every aspect of patient care. Discover the practical steps we can take to protect the healthcare sector and save lives.
