Cyber risk is taking increasing prominence in boardroom agendas and governance discussions. Indeed, the failure of cybersecurity measures was rated the top risk by Australian business leaders surveyed in the World Economic Forum’s latest Executive Opinion Survey.

In the health and aged care sectors, which report one of the highest incidence of costly cyber and ransomware attacks, it’s a case of not if, but when in terms of the next breach.

This, combined with recent regulatory changes and increased scrutiny of cyber security measures make it ever more critical for aged care providers to understand and manage their cyber exposure.

In this engaging and informative session moderated by Marsh Care Solutions practice leader Lyle Steffensen, cyber risk and insurance experts will discuss:

  • The evolving cyber risk environment and what aged and health care providers should be prepared for
  • The basic fundamentals of building a robust cyber foundation
  • What good looks like when it comes to responding to cyber incidents
  • An overview of recent changes within the cyber insurance market
  • The new minimum standards of cyber risk controls required to buy cyber insurance and how to make these work for your organisation
  • Learnings from recent claims
  • Where cyber fits in good governance

The session is designed for executives, directors and boards responsible for the governance and strategy of aged care providers. Through market insights, case studies and practical recommendations, attendees will improve their understanding of this critical emerging risk and the steps needed to build business resilience.
