Data Protection in the Health Sector

Interview with Naveed Malik, Head of Data Protection at Push Doctor


In this episode we interview Naveed Malik, Head of Data Protection at Push Doctor, a service which supplements your GP in order to provide the best healthcare.


Data protection in the health sector is of particular concern, especially at a time like the present, when the pandemic situation has meant that the vast majority of healthcare providers have had to switch up their offering, from face-to-face meetings to online appointments, with all that this entails in terms of privacy, online activities and the processing of sensitive data, etc.


Naveed has extensive experience on both the institutional side and in the private sector, providing him with a unique perspective on the different challenges that organisations and data protection leaders face, and strategies he’s developed in order to get the two on the same page, and he shares this with our listeners in this episode.

Once you have the confidence of the people that are handling the information, the persuasion, and influencing around , data protection processes, policies, and mindset, sinks in that little bit better. I've found that there is a process that you have to go through, you can't simply get people in a room and say "this is what GDPR is and off you go", it just doesn't work like that.
