As cyber security is currently a hot topic since the TalkTalk hacking (see our article on the dangers of opening emails from fake sender accounts), and the future of the NHS is uncertain, Jeremy Hunt’s recent announcement regarding cyber security is well-timed to shape the future of technology in the NHS. The Secretary of State for Health announced that £4bn has been set aside to go towards healthcare investment, and experts say that a quarter of that is expected to be spent on cyber security.
What Does Increased Budgeting for Cyber Security Mean for the NHS?
With cyber security becoming a pressing issue for everyone from single smartphone users to huge enterprise systems and national counter-terrorism efforts, the National Health Service has placed it in high priority going forward. The importance of cyber security in modern healthcare is immeasurable, as is anything that directly affects patient care. Increased cyber security for the NHS means confidence that patient data remains intact and unchanged, crucial notes aren’t stolen and that systems stay online.
