Delivered in collaboration with the Australian Digital Health Agency, this webinar will cover key cyber security concepts including ransomware, password security, phishing scams, network and device security, and how to respond to any breaches. There will also be a discussion of My Health Record security and privacy features. The session will also include an opportunity to ask questions.
