That timely access to data and information is critical to the delivery of effective healthcare is beyond doubt. So too is that said information is often sensitive, and keeping it safe and only in the hands of those who actually need it is a pressing concern.

On Monday 21 October at 10.30am, HSJ ran a free webinar to discuss just how the healthcare organisations can strike the right balance between straightforward access to information and appropriate protection of it.

Chaired by Nick Carding, HSJ’s technology correspondent, the webinar considered how the NHS’ approach to security has progressed since the WannaCry attack and the challenges in ensuring the right staff have access to the right information at the right time.

On the panel were Saif Abed, founding partner and director of cybersecurity advisory services at AbedGraham; Gary Colman, head of IT audit and assurance services at West Midlands Ambulance Service Foundation Trust; and Mark Lambert, transformation sales lead at NEL commissioning support unit.

The event is supported by Okta and entirely free to watch.
