Immunising your Health Data against Attacks

HealthTech Women UK, Breakfast Discovery Session

As the use of technology increases across health and social care, so does the risk of cyber-attacks and threats to data. Data security is currently a hot topic and there is lots of information on general cyber security. This HealthTech Women UK event, running in association with BT Global Services, will look further into protecting patient data with practical, targeted information and advice for healthtech professionals.

Join HealthTech Women UK for breakfast at the BT Tower for this practical and informative session on the challenges of ensuring cyber security in health and care.

Chaired by Linda Cairney, Director of Health International Market Development at BT, this event will feature speakers discussing the importance of creating a culture of prevention and ensuring there is wide-spread knowledge of the precautions available.

  • Deborah Moir – Senior Security Consultant, BT Global Services
