Healthcare Cybersecurity Conference: Protecting the NHS Against Cyberattacks

Venue: AJ Bell Stadium, Stadium Way, Eccles, Manchester, M30 7EY

Sorry, this event has now ended.

A co-ordinated cyberattack against numerous NHS trusts in May this year exposed the major vulnerabilities within the UK healthcare sector’s digital infrastructure.

The increasing digitalisation of NHS services in recent years has driven back office efficiencies and improved the way medical professionals store and share patient data, but these developments have also increased the risk from disruptive cyber attacks, with the potential to compromise both NHS services and patient safety.

The University of Salford and Salford Professional Development present the Healthcare Cybersecurity Conference where expert speakers from across the NHS and technology sectors will explain how to protect vital services and sensitive data.

The event will be an opportunity to understand the impact of previous cyber attacks and how they could have been prevented, be the first to see the latest security technology and ensure your organisation is protected from the threat posed by cyber criminals. Expect to hear from leading experts in NHS cybersecurity including Steven Parker, Associate Director of IT at Informatics Merseyside NHS.
