In this fireside chat with Peter Daly, Chief Emergency Management Officer at HSE Ireland, we zoom in on the main drivers for cybersecurity in healthcare.
Peter explains why we need to detect and protect against vulnerabilities in IT systems and medical devices in order to deliver the best possible service to patients.
As we are moving more and more towards the digitalisation of health systems, we need to make sure that those systems are reliable, and this means that we need to understand where our vulnerabilities are and where the risks are coming from.
Cybersecurity is not just the responsibility of IT staff but also of clinical staff, whose primary concern is the safety and wellbeing of patients. This is all part of the holistic approach to cybersecurity, combining people, processes and technology to increase resilience against cyber-attacks and incidents.
This is where the PANACEA Toolkit comes into play, guiding healthcare organisations in taking simple steps towards a baseline security in the face of an evolving threat landscape.
