Join us for episode 8 as we discuss securing the healthcare sector. Across the world, hospitals, care homes, mental health facilities and their staff have been under intense pressure over the past few years with the COVID pandemic bringing new challenges into an already stretched environment.

Just how did the sector go about protecting staff, patients and the facilities they work and recover in, during this period? And what security challenges does healthcare face now?

These are questions we ask Roger Ringham from the National Association of Healthcare Security Professionals (NAHS) and Darren Chalmers Stevens from CriticalArc, in this episode. It's a fascinating chat, covering everything from the issue of the mental health crisis and the impact it has had on security professionals, to protecting pop-up vaccination centres and how technology is coming to the fore to support lone worker protection.
