The healthcare system is increasingly vulnerable to critical infrastructure risks that could compromise the ability of the system to do its job of caring for patients in times of need. HealthCareCAN has taken the lead in mobilizing the health sector to respond to threats to health sector critical infrastructure and cyber security.

Learn where the risks are and what we at we are doing to address them. Connect with other health leaders who have the same priorities and interests as you and return to your organization with a better understanding of what’s at stake for your organization, your employees and ultimately your patients.

  • Learn about the federal mandate around critical infrastructure and cyber security and how this translates to the health sector.
  • Hear what key informants had to say about risks and vulnerabilities facing the healthcare sector and our state of readiness for addressing threats.
  • Hear what hospital leaders and boards need to consider with respect to cybersecurity and critical infrastructure.
  • Be the first to read Issue Briefs on Critical Infrastructure and Cyber Security recently developed by HealthCareCAN with the support of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
