In this rapidly changing world in which life sciences and health care organizations are facing everything from fast-moving technological advancements to a global pandemic, the mitigation of risk is one of the keys to survival and success. In this four-part series of webinars for life sciences and health care professionals, we will dive into critical areas that will likely transform health care as we know it—and discuss what organizations can do today to prepare for tomorrow.

Data privacy and cybersecurity in the future of health


1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly changed the course of health care’s future. It has accelerated the adoption of telehealth, making it a significant part of the health care delivery system much sooner than expected. With this rapid change comes risk. How important will data privacy in health care be? Can there be a future of health without the privacy and security of data? What is the digital privacy of the future? How will consumers know what can be done with their data? Who will own the data? What cyber capabilities are needed to keep the data secure? And if there is a breach, who is responsible?

During the webcast, our speakers covered:

  • The importance of managing data privacy and cybersecurity risks as organizations move toward the health care delivery model of the future
  • How user experience is evolving to become consumer-centric as consumers are more actively controlling their health care through apps and websites
  • The need for privacy programs to adapt to a fast-paced, innovative environment and address the changing health care landscape
  • Why cyber capabilities will need to be revisited as the importance of data privacy in health care continues to grow
  • Simon Gisby | principal, Life Sciences & Health Care leader for Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP and Future of Health leader for Deloitte US Risk & Financial Advisory
  • Eric Bowlin | partner, Life Sciences & Health Care privacy leader, Risk & Financial Advisory, Deloitte & Touche LLP
  • John Lu | principal, Life Sciences & Health Care cyber risk services practice leader, Risk & Financial Advisory, Deloitte & Touche LLP
