It’s a troublesome time for the healthcare industry: Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is under siege and hospitals are big targets for cyberattacks.

Information Security threats in Healthcare

The NHS holds vast amounts of highly sensitive and potentially valuable data, making it a prime target for cyber-crime.

Almost 1,000 cyber security breaches were reported to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) between October 2016 and September 2017 in the Healthcare sector. To put this into perspective, Healthcare suffered the highest amount of breaches of all 22 sectors recorded, with more than 700 incidents separating Healthcare from the second worst hit sector.

This was driven primarily by those disclosing data to the incorrect recipient, loss/theft of patient records, and other failures of Principle 7 in the Data Protection Act.

Our overarching objective is that by 2020 we will have revolutionised the way technology, data and information are used to transform the delivery of England’s health and social care services.
