In partnership with Eastern Health, techNL is hosting a webinar to discuss the plans to establish a Centre of Excellence in healthcare cybersecurity at Eastern Health: an exciting prospect that will impact the innovation capacity of Newfoundland and Labrador.

EH, with support of two levels of government, HealthcareCAN, the national voice of healthcare organizations and hospitals across Canada, and other partners has been embarked on an initiative aimed at establishing a Centre of Excellence ( COE ) in healthcare cybersecurity at its main facility in St. John’s. The strategy builds on a year-long ‘strategic dialogue’ with the cybersecurity and technology ecosystem of Israel and its world-renowned approach to converting technological obstacles into industrial innovation success. The COE would entail at its core:

  • The establishment of a Security Operations Centre (SOC), a sophisticated data monitoring and analytical system designed to protect digital assets of EH. The SOC will constitute state of the arts IT technological components and associated highly skilled personnel;
  • A training arena alongside the SOC: a sophisticated platform for education, training and skills development on IT systems, signal analysis and overall advanced capabilities in digital technologies;
  • A medtech innovation centre which would include equipment testing, R

The event is finished.
