Presentation Title
Securing our health information from cyber threats as the world goes digital

With rapid digitisation there are growing concerns about information security in the health sector. Security threats are intensified by the increased interconnectedness of information systems and by consumer participation in health processes. The potential for large-scale system failure as a result of cyber attacks is very real. In this presentation I will survey current trends in health information systems including consumer technologies. I will then examine case studies in hospitals, general practice and the consumer space to discuss cybersecurity challenges unique to health. The presentation will aim to improve understanding about health information systems and to identify gaps and areas for further work.
