Cyber security, data security – threats and opportunities

October 25, 2023 @ 9:20 AM 10:20 AM

We will hear from experts, CyberCX, about many issues of critical importance to all of us right now. CyberCX is the leading provider of professional cyber security and cloud services across Australia and New Zealand, and their experts will join us to share their expertise on data and cyber security, particularly in health and research. And the session will be Chaired by James Green – Garvan Information Security Manager.

Data-driven digitalisation is revolutionising health – and holds the promise of delivering major improvements to patient outcomes. How can we lean into this revolution, while maintaining cyber resilience and community confidence?  This presentation will outline key cyber threats to data-driven health and how improving data governance maturity reduces the risks of a breach. 

We’ll examine:

  • how cyber criminals and malicious foreign governments are currently exploiting Australians’ health data and the essential services that rely on it
  • the impacts of these threats – from privacy loss to service disruption and risks to health and safety
  • emerging threats to data-driven devices, research and services
  • what is data governance and how lapses in it have led to recent high profile data breaches
  • upcoming changes to Australian privacy legislation and how they will have a material impact on how we manage data
  • the importance of knowing what data you hold, where it is and who can access it
  • techniques we can employ to improve data governance maturity
  • recommendations for managing both current, and emerging threats

And there’ll be a luck door prize too!
