Cyber Security Awareness Month October 2022

Find out how you can get involved with the campaign.

The future of cyber security needs you

The threat of cyber attacks to health and social care remains a real and present danger.

At NHS Digital, we work 24/7 to protect health and care data. As cyber attacks continue to evolve, our technical methods to combat them do too. 

But cyber security isn’t just an IT issue; a huge part of our cyber security strategy will always centre around our people.

We’re truly stronger together, and the more each of us knows about cyber security, the better we can protect ourselves, our patients and service users, and the safer we’ll all be. 

So this Cyber Security Awareness Month, join us in keeping our data safe by learning more about cyber security and the role you can play.
