The ‘Wannacry’ ransomware demand that hit the NHS in May 2017 was a relatively small attack, and NHS professionals of all kinds worked tirelessly to ensure that any impacts on the public were minimal.
Service affecting issues across all kinds of organisations happen all the time; what made this unique was that NHS organisations were, in unusually large numbers, diverting ambulances and cancelling treatments.
In the immediate aftermath, experts and insiders alike went on to news outlets and on to social media, with their explanations or how this could have happened. What is clear is that something needed to be done to ensure that such an attack will never have the same impact on the NHS in the future.
This is why, working with professionals, healthcare informaticians, our members and other partners across the health sector, we have come up with the Blueprint for Cyber Security in Health and Care.
