By 2020, over 20 billion devices are expected to be connected worldwide – from cell phone to wearable devices, from fridges to coffee makers, almost anything than can be connected to the internet will be connected.

But how is increased interconnectivity affecting the healthcare sector – healthcare organisations, the people who work in them, and their patients?

The increased digitalisation that we have seen and still see has many advantages, but widespread interconnectivity is also affecting cybersecurity across the world. Healthcare organisations have become a major target for cybercriminals because of the data they hold. Accidents that lead to data breaches can have severe consequences for the patients, staff members, and the healthcare organisation itself.

How can healthcare organisations protect themselves, their staff and their patients against these growing threats?

How can you as a healthcare professional contribute to this process?

Join our online community to dive deeper into the cybersecurity topics and learn how you can have an impact in making your working environment more secure.

Our online course is interactive and lets you discuss arising questions with course instructors and other participants.

You will be able to receive a certificate when you have successfully completed the course.
