Compromised Trust: Cyber Attack on the National Health Service

12/May/2017

Even the NHS is getting hit by cyber attacks! Hospitals across the country are experiencing the effects of a ransomware cyber attack on ‘secure systems’. The resulting effect is chaos for patients who’s care is being affected and some hospitals are even having to send patients to alternative hospitals for treatment. A major incident like this goes to show that everyone is vulnerable to attacks and it is important to ensure your organisation is secure. Early compliance with the GDPR will ensure your organisation is prepared should you be targeted next!

A major incident like this affects not just the immediate patients but all the patients the NHS holds data about. It takes one breach to damage the trust built over the year between an organisation and its customers. Do not let it be you!
