In doing so, the NHS can remain focused on day-to-day, local operational and clinical priorities and provide safe, effective and efficient patient care.
Cyber threats are constantly evolving and always present, so digital health and care organisations must remain prepared and ready to respond. We provide a range of specialist services that help NHS organisations manage cyber risk and to recover in the event of an incident.
We work to ensure that patient data and information is stored in systems that are safe and secure. We do this by providing services, guidance and support to health and care organisations.
monitor security threats to IT systems and networks and help organisations respond to these threats, through defence and incident management
provide the national response to system-wide security incidents
offer information security consultancy and help with security issues in system design and development
provide guidance and advice for people working in health and care
The Data Security Centre is not a regulator. Instead, we act as an enabler, helping leaders and employees across the system to deliver better data security within their health and care organisations.
