You probably read the headlines or listened to the news about Waikato DHB’s cyberattack and you probably knew more about this incident than some staff who actually worked here. But let me tell you this, it wasn’t fixed even after that weekend!  Attend my presentation and I will be sharing with you an inside story of how it was in the perioperative complex during the cyberattack.
