Cyber security training

People are the weakest point in any cyber security defence – 95 per cent of security attacks result from human error. Training is an important line of defence.

Cyber attacks can be devastating. They can directly affect patient safety and disrupt medical procedures, as well as presenting risks to critical information and confidential data. Purchasing systems and the co-ordination of emergency services can also be under threat. The CyberStrong course developed by our own IT team has been certified by NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre). We are the first NHS organisation to achieve this.
