India is embarking on the path of digitising healthcare data, with the development of Health ID, registries of healthcare professionals and service providers. Healthcare infrastructure is critical infrastructure, and the pandemic has brought the importance of fragility of healthcare technology infrastructure into sharp focus.

Through this discussion, we want to examine the key findings of the CyberPeace Institute’s report focusing on cybersecurity and healthcare, and bring together key stakeholders to better understand the nature of the threats that cyberattacks have placed on healthcare services, professionals and patients, sharing best practices and recommendations for governments, healthcare institutions, and non-profit organisations.

This is an invite-only session, so don’t forget to apply to attend. Please feel free to suggest points of discussion and questions you think ought to be raised, in the application form.
