As International Co-Chair of HL7 Security, and the Australian expert on security, software and safety health informatics ISO standards (ISO Technical Committee 215), she builds on over 30 years' experience in healthcare computing including 15 years industry experience in general practice and pharmacy computing, before joining academia in 2001.

Professor Williams has a strong focus on the translation of research into practical application, demonstration of the contribution that digital health technologies can make to support healthcare, and the use of information security as an enabler for improved healthcare communication and interoperability. She is recognised internationally for her digital health information security expertise and experience in digital health information interoperability. Professor Williams is the primary author of The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Computer and Information Security Standards, translating essential information security practice into accessible and implementable practical guidance for primary care. She is currently working on the EU TREsPASS project (Technology-Supported Risk Estimation by Predictive Assessment of Socio-Technical Security) to translate the research outcomes to practical use-cases in healthcare and tertiary education for the European Union.  Further, as co-lead on the new IEC/ISO 80001 Foundation Standard for medical devices in IT networks, and member of the IEC/ISO 82304 Medical Device and Health Software Safety development working group, she has demonstrated skills in cross-discipline and cross-industry collaboration. Supporting this Professor Williams has attracted funding from industry partners for PhD Scholarships on remote patient monitoring and research into application of international eHealth software safety standards in the Australian context.
