NHS Digital has launched an organisation-wide cyber security campaign to provide staff with the most up-to-date guidance on how to avoid and mitigate potential cyber threats and data breaches.
With the NHS being one of the biggest direct and indirect targets for cyber criminals, NHS Digital’s ‘Keep I.T. Confidential‘ campaign is hoping to educate the workforce on the impact of cyber security on patient safety and care.
As part of the programme run by NHS Digital’s Data Security Centre (DSC), staff will be reminded of a host of key cyber security threats that could compromise the NHS’ defences. There will also be information on what actions staff can take to reduce the risk of attack.
