The NHS is seriously deficient in cybersecurity expertise
A report from Redscan has found the NHS desperately needs more in-house cybersecurity expertise to protect against increasing attacks.
Potential ways to compromise the NHS systems are increasing as systems become connected for things such as remote health monitoring, accessing records, and even surgery.
The vulnerability of the NHS was highlighted last year when a ransomware spread to critical systems and held them hostage. At least 6,900 NHS appointments were cancelled as a result of the attack.
