• Secure Chorus full-scale event focusing on data protection in the NHS

        • Cyber security not-for-profit membership organisation, Secure Chorus has announced the launch of its Thought Leadership Platform. The initiative will increase awareness and understanding of current cyber security issues among business leaders across the public and private sectors. It will also stress the importance of protecting data and how to best address this challenge in practice.

          Secure Chorus has hosted its first full-scale sector-specific Thought Leadership Platform with representatives of the NHS. The meeting took place at Secure Chorus’ headquarters in Canary Wharf and addressed the issue of protecting data from patient health and care records within the NHS

          Elisabetta Zaccaria, Chairman said, “cyber security is a very complicated world to navigate. Our Thought Leadership Platform brings together our members with user communities across sectors. We help users to rise above the ‘noise’ and understand what the key matters are to consider. This ensures the multimedia technologies they choose are secure, regulatory compliant and interoperable.

          “Secure Chorus serves as a platform for public-private sector collaboration on the development of forward-looking strategies, common standards and tangible capabilities that address the current data protection requirements in enterprise. We are aware of the importance of supporting the NHS transition to a digital organisation and we are committed to supportingthem to tackle the data security aspect of it.”

          With the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there is an increased emphasis on the importance of secure multimedia technologies for M2M, B2B and B2C within the healthcare sector. Ensuring that staff and patients have secure access to the right data, at the right time, is vital to the NHS providing effective, safe and good-value services. Digitalisation is overcoming many of the inefficiencies and fragmentation of the healthcare sector, however the process of moving to a digital NHS needs to happen with data security in mind.

          Healthcare is considered Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and therefore an attractive target for hostile foreign countries or organised crime seeking to cause chaos, especially as attacking a healthcare organisation that is part of a wider network orinfrastructure could also provide a ‘way-in’ to other critical facilities. Technologies used in healthcare, along with the variety of its stakeholders, create a complex environment to protect, comprising computer systems, mobile applications and IoT devices, as well as non-medical systems such as CCTV. The large number of stakeholders accessing such technologies has also pushed the security perimeter to protect, with healthcare organisations accessing external networks to stay connected with patients, employees and other stakeholders, and vice versa.
