The post-covid cyber challenges in the health sector

COVID-19 and the rapid technology adoption by the healthcare industry, added to outdated legacy systems and the human risk factor, make hospitals and other health organizations vulnerable to cyber attacks. Ransomware, DDoS attacks, phishing, and medjacking are some of the examples of cyberattacks suffered by the healthcare industry in the last few years, and it is evident that the number will increase. Consequences on the pharmaceutical industry range from stolen IP, interruption of clinical trials, litigation and lost revenue.  Join this session to review the top cyberattacks suffered by healthcare entities, learn from them, and discuss ways of mitigating the risk. This unique event brings together local and international professionals from healthcare providers to government institutions, digital health startups, investors, and academic institutions.
