VHA strikes partnership with nDiscovery for managed cyber-security treat detection

Posted 18 September 2017

The VHA has joined forces with international cybersecurity threat detection experts nDiscovery, it was announced today.

VHA CEO Tom Symondson said cybersecurity was of paramount importance to health services and the partnership with global firm nDiscovery would add value to members.

“Protecting your business from cyber threats grows more challenging and specialised every day. It’s important our members are prepared for cybersecurity threats, understand the risks and have the support they need,” Mr Symondson said.

nDiscovery Director Brendan Travis said the company was pleased to partner with the peak body for Victoria’s public health services and is looking forward  to coming to Australian for the VHA State Conference, Humanity in health from October 5-6. Brendan has been invited to be a panellist to  share his insights on this topical subject with members and other stakeholders.

“Providing cybersecurity services since 2006, the company delivers advanced threat detection, incident response support, and compliance reporting. It also obviates the need to invest in costly hardware or dedicated on-premise resources,” he said.

Join the experts from nDiscovery for a webinar presentation on Wednesday 27 September at 10am.

This member-only information session will touch on the impact of recent global ransomware outbreaks and why it’s relevant for healthcare providers in a session titled, Ransomware: What You Need to Know and Do.
