SCAN Health launches 3rd Annual Virtual Business Case Competition and “We need U to complete CYBERSEC_RITY”
WINDSOR, ON (December 3, 2019) - SCAN Health is pleased to share the launch of the 3rd annual Virtual Business Case Competition (#SCANHvBCC) on December 3, 2019. This is a one of a kind opportunity that provides undergraduate and graduate business school students from around the world a chance to showcase their knowledge, skills and innovative solutions to advance supply chain and logistics in a leading global health system.
This year’s business case is focused on Cyber Hygiene and Security. The case is based on a real-world challenge and designed with a key health system partner in the U.S. Participating students will take the role of a consulting team advising a large health system on the development of a cybersecurity strategy that is inclusive of the supply chain. Teams will be challenged to understand the landscape of emerging cybersecurity threats as they pertain to various forms of medical devices, equipment and operational technologies and potential points of vulnerability with respect to outside partners or providers with access to mission-critical and non-mission critical systems that may or may not be within the purview of the chief supply chain officer or chief information security officer (e.g. HVAC). The teams’ strategy must address the growing threat of gray markets and counterfeit products. Lastly, teams will be asked to consider whether and how a health system might monetize their newfound cyber hygiene capabilities.
The students’ proposals will be reviewed and adjudicated by an esteemed panel of judges including international health system leaders, supply chain experts, academics and industry executives.
Registration is free and open to all undergraduate, graduate and MBA students worldwide. The winning teams will receive cash prizes of $7,500 ($4,000 for first, $2,500 for second and $1,000 for third). The top 3 teams will be announced at the HIMSS 2020 Global Health Conference in Orlando, Florida with an audience of 45,000 global health changemakers from around the world. They will also receive an invitation to a SCAN Health event as an opportunity to connect with global leaders in health systems, industry, government, and academia.
