About this Event

The world is scrambling to develop a vaccine against SARS CoV-​2. Access to sensitive and confidential patient data could be a game changer for researchers battling future pandemics, but what actually happens to your medical data? How do hospitals, universities, and healthcare providers share data to advance research? How will tomorrow’s cybersecurity infrastructure protect us?

On 27 and 28 May 2020, Roche continues its Tower Talk series (Turmgespräche) hosted this year by ETH Zurich on the topic "Patient - Data - Security: Cyber threats in healthcare - are we at risk?” Together with the ETH Zurich, Roche invites you to a special virtual edition of the Tower Talks event series. In two free 45-minute lunchtime (CET) sessions, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn, and engage in a dialogue with four incredible data security experts and scientists.

Chris Luebkeman - an Arup Fellow and Director of Strategic Foresight at ETH Zurich, moderates both sessions of the ETH Zurich / Roche 2020 Tower Talks (Turmgespräche).
