#HASHTECH Unplugged! Transforming the Healthcare Sector at the frontlines of the Covid-19 Pandemic
Special Interview with:
Linus Tham, Group CIO, IHH Healthcare
Leonard Ong, Regional Information Security Officer, APAC, GE Healthcare
Alvin Rodrigues, Field Chief Security Officer – Asia Pacific, Infoblox
In Part 1 of this edition of #Hashtech Unplugged, tech leaders from Asia’s healthcare sector share how the Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the frontlines of medical care and healthcare services.
Major transformation was already underway but Covid accelerated it, forcing them to relook ways of engaging and providing care during periods of closed borders, lockdowns and fears surrounding the exposure to the virus, when care delivery was traditionally done in hospitals. Medical records are accessible on the internet between healthcare workers given access, but this also increases vulnerability to hackers.
So with healthcare institutions becoming increasingly connected with patients, how do healthcare organisations ensure that patient records and sensitive medical data and equipment remain resilient to cyber attacks?
Watch on to hear from our guest practitioners as they share their views on the critical role of cybersecurity in battling the global Covid-19 pandemic.
