WEBINAR: Cybersecurity – An Enabler in Securing Patient Safety

Thursday, February 25, 2021 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about new and exceptional challenges in the healthcare sector. It has imposed massive constraints and exposed one of the key concerns in the Canadian healthcare system- eroding patient safety given the alarming number of cybersecurity attacks.
