Cyber should be on every health and care organisation’s business radar (Expert Blogs and Opinion)

For any health and care organisation, security is a perpetual consideration, as IT teams work continuously to safeguard networks, systems, medical devices, data, etc., across multiple disparate locations. “All NHS organisations are to ensure that every board has an Executive Director as data security lead…” “There must be a named Senior Executive responsible for data and cyber security in your organisation.” We have long advocated leadership involvement in cyber security policy; see our Health and Care Security Advisory Guide, and NHS Cyber Security Challenge for more on this. Without this link between an organisation’s IT security and business requirements, security controls will at best manage just part of the risk – but how will you know for certain how effective they really are? For further information, visit our dedicated Health and Care Security Page, or download our Health and Care Security Advisory Guide, and NHS Cyber Security Challenge.
