Healthcare is a critical infrastructure. The pandemic has brought the fragility of healthcare tech infrastructure into sharp focus, with threat actors exploiting the complex, and sometimes vulnerable, digital environments. With this discussion, we want to examine the key findings of the report from the Cyberpeace Institute, to better understand the nature of the threats that cyberattacks have placed on healthcare services, professionals and patients. We’d hope to further discuss and share best practices and recommendations for governments, healthcare institutions, and non-profit organisations.
