The healthcare sector faces more information security risks than almost any other. NHS organisations and their partners not only experience the kind of automated cyber attacks that every organisation has to mitigate on a daily basis but also must contend with targeted attacks that aim to disrupt critical national infrastructure.
The healthcare sector will see an increased legal and regulatory focus on cyber resilience this year thanks to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS Directive). The former comes into effect on 25 May 2018, and the latter must be transposed into national law by 9 May 2018.
In addition, NHS Digital’s Information Governance (IG) Toolkit has been superseded by the new, more comprehensive Data Security and Protection (DSP) Toolkit.
