Big security role on offer at ADHA - what could possibly go wrong?

itNews, 18 November 2016:

One of the highest-stakes cyber security jobs in the federal government is up for grabs as the Australian Digital Health Agency looks for an executive to take on responsibility for securing the national e-health records system.
The My Health Record platform is on the cusp of becoming a fully national data store as the government prepares to make registration opt-out in a move that will create accounts for most Australians.
It means the My Health Record system, which is operated by the ADHA, will very quickly turn into one of the largest and most sensitive databases in the country - and a big target for cyber criminals looking to capitalise on the risk.
The ADHA is looking to recruit an experienced security boss to lead its cyber security centre and take on accountability for the health data of millions of Australians.
