WatchGuard and Claranet Cyber Security keep NHS systems in tip-top condition and free from cyber infections
Backed by a £4.2 billon Government investment, the NHS has a prescription for change. It is currently undertaking a widespread digital transformation of its processes and an overhaul of its aging technology estate.
This has led to the healthcare industry being at a crossroads. It wants to bring aching legacy systems into the 21st century; and offer staff and patients with the connectivity they desire. Yet, it wants to ensure that it controls access to critical systems and the sensitive information that is held within. This fear has only intensified in the wake of 2017’s widespread WannaCry ransomware attack.
The Government is accelerating this change and is aiming to provide free Wi-Fi in all NHS buildings by 2020. This has led to almost a third of hospitals planning to upgrade their Wi-Fi in the next couple of years. Yet, the rush towards a fully functioning, increasingly connected NHS needs to be approached with caution. The good news is that to facilitate this change, £1 billion has been earmarked for information governance and cyber security within the NHS.
