Message from the CEO
Thank you to everyone who participated in the cybersecurity survey. We had more than 150 submissions from members and stakeholders across a broad range of sectors and we expect to gain valuable information for our Cybersecurity Community of Practice. The results will guide the focus and activities of the Cybersecurity Community of Practice over the next 12-18 months. Ultimately, the group wants to work with a range of stakeholders to influence the application of sound security practices in healthcare. We will be sharing outcomes with you in the near future. The community of practice has a dynamic leadership team with Prof Trish Williams, Dr Damian Claydon-Platt, Tony Abbenante and David Bunker who has recently taken over as Chair from Dr John Zelcer. John played an enormous role in getting the community of practice up and running and being our first Chair – thank you! This group will have a lot of work to do and your support and interest is welcomed. It is certainly a high profile area for healthcare today. You can email the HISA team if you would like to get involved.
