Protecting the NHS from cyber attacks

When critical services and access to healthcare systems are at stake, a cyber-attack can have major consequences. At a time of exceptional challenges for our National Health Service, cybercriminals have shown they won’t spare those operating on the frontline and providing vital services.

Healthcare providers are attractive targets for cybercriminals due to their large volumes of medical records and other sensitive information. The personal data of patients is a valuable commodity on the black market as the details they contain can be exploited for fraud, blackmail and further targeted cyber-attacks. Securing healthcare databases and networks from cyber-attacks is now more critical than ever. It is also extremely challenging for a sector facing budget constraints and legacy systems.
