Cyber threats are a growing concern for the pharmacy industry. Cyber-attacks can compromise pharmacy systems’ confidentiality, integrity, and availability, causing financial losses, reputational damage, regulatory penalties, and even endangering public health. So pharmacy professionals must be aware of the sources of cyber threat information and the importance of it for their sector.
One of the primary sources of cyber threat information is the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), part of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). The ACSC advises and assists Australian businesses and individuals on cyber security issues and responding to cyber incidents affecting Australia’s national interests.
Another source of cyber threat information is the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), part of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), part of the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), is a third reliable source of cyber threat information.
Cybersecurity is a business and professional responsibility that requires constant vigilance and awareness. By following these sources of cyber threat information, pharmacy professionals can better understand their industry’s cyber risks and how to protect themselves and their organisations from potential attacks. By staying informed of the latest cyber threats and best practices, pharmacy professionals can enhance their cyber resilience and contribute to the safety and quality of healthcare delivery.
