3:30 PM Creating a Clear Security Overview using the Maturity Assessment Model and Looking at Medical Device Cyber Security as a Collaborative Approach
In a joint presentation Simon Cowley and Andrew Oldaker discuss their work at the Royal Melbourne Hospital where they are advancing towards stronger cyber defence capabilities. Compromised critical infrastructure - such as medical devices - can impact the capacity of an organisation to perform its primary business functions – such as treating and caring for patients. Healthcare organisations have a wealth of sensitive data, highly sought after by criminal elements, which leads them to be a favourable target. Collaboration, a whole-of-business strategy, and effective controls are essential to mitigate the cyber security risk of medical devices.

- Benefits of labelling each hospital will a level of cyber security maturity and how it will attract pertinent questions on cyber capacity.
