Cybersecurity, Trust, and Privacy in Connected Mental Health – A Perspective from Europe

Cybersecurity, Trust, and Privacy in Connected Mental Health – A Perspective from Europe

June 29, 2021

We are seeing rapidly growing trends towards the application of digital therapeutics for mental health conditions; a great deal exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Are we approaching a time when doctors prescribe mobile apps, games for adolescents, or Virtual Reality to treat social anxiety and/or treat mental ill-health rather than medication or talk sessions? If YES, then managing cybersecurity and privacy risks must be top of the agenda.

Listen to this episode to understand the opportunities and growing challenges in managing duty of care, security, and privacy with a highly vulnerable population of patients with an easily accessible suite of mental health digital therapeutics.

What can an emerging Latin American region teach us when it comes to cyber risk management in the digital healthcare transformation?

We sit down with Roque Juarez, Security Intelligence Specialist at IBM in Mexico, to get an understanding of how basic principles can be critical to cyber threat management in connected healthcare systems regardless of whether you are an emerging or established economy. If you think COVID-19 pandemic slowed down the rate of threat, think again.

Tune in as Roque shares how COVID-19 made it more appealing for hackers to breach labs, healthcare systems, and any repository of patient health data and research.
