Not all #CyberFest events are born equal. Some take a while to come to fruition and are not put to bed until long after they have been advertised. The risk to such an approach is that we may not be able to deliver yet putting a stake in the ground does wonders for focussing your attention.
Improving patient outcomes through secure HealthTech is one of these events. HealthTech is another cluster that Dynamo North East is developing under the guidance of Hermina, and we were keen to have an event as part of the NOrth East’s biggest cybersecurity festival.
The health & social care sector is significant across the region, hence the cluster approach. The question we want to address through this event is how can the cyber security industry support it in improving patient outcomes and tackle the primary pressures facing health and social care, safely and securely.
Health and social care is facing enormous tensions between the need to provide better and more efficient services and the necessity of protecting patient data. With the ever increasing movement of data comes the ever increasing risk of loss, either by accident or through intention. This is where the cyber security sector can come in.
So, if you are working in a health tech company, a cyber security company, are a health and social care professional or academic studying or researching in health then you should get along to the North East Futures UTC, Newcastle on 13 September between 17:30- 19:30, to hear about: The development of Datashield, from Patricia Ryser-Welch – Research Visiting Fellow, Newcastle University; Using data for health research, from Alex Craig – Commercial legal adviser, Muckle; Using Cloud for Public Sector Healthcare, from Stephen Walker – Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services (AWS); and The changing risks of cyber security in health, from Igor Kotsiuba – CEO iSolutionsLabs.
The event will conclude with a panel discussion and audience Q&A on ‘How do the Health and cyber security sectors work together.’
FREE tickets for this event are available here. I hope to see you there.
