Healthcare Cybersecurity Conference: Protecting the NHS against cyberattacks
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 cyberattacks, with the potential to compromise both NHS services and patient safety.
Join us for the Healthcare Cybersecurity Conference where expert speakers from across the NHS and technology sectors will explain how to protect vital services and sensitive data. Understand the impact of previous cyberattacks 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 cybercriminals.
Expect to hear from leading experts in NHS cybersecurity including Steven Parker, Associate Director of IT at Informatics Merseyside NHS.

Interview: Mustafa Al-Bassam a former hacker, now Cyber-security student at University College London
Andrew Young interviews Mustafa Al-Bassam a former black hat hacker who was one of the six core members of LulzSec during its 50-day spree of attacks in the spring of 2011. At the time of the so-called "50 Days of Lulz", Al-Bassam was 16 years old and living as a student in London. He is one of the affiliates of the online association of "hacktivists" known as Anonymous that targeted HBGary and HBGaryFederal in February 2011, having done much of the actual hacking work.
He is currently a technology volunteer with Privacy International in London and a doctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science at University College London.
