Is New Zealanders’ health information safe from attackers?

 
Global cybersecurity expert, Hector Rodriguez, will be in New Zealand on the 1st of August specifically as the guest speaker at the Cybersecurity in Health Symposium being held in Auckland.  This is a one-off opportunity to hear from Microsoft’s Worldwide Health Chief Information Security Officer as he has a very clear and direct message for New Zealanders –
 
“Hackers are smart but also lazy and they go after easy targets. Health groups should not make themselves easy targets.  They should begin to adopt a more comprehensive cybersecurity posture that starts from within, leverage the work by their trusted IT vendors and employ layered security to make it more difficult to be attacked,” he says.  Read a recent press release for more on Hector and his thoughts about keeping Kiwis’ health information safe from attack and ransom (more information click here)
