Keep I.T. Confidential campaign

The Keep I.T. Confidential campaign aims to educate NHS staff on the direct impact that data and cyber security has on patient safety and care. Find out more about the campaign.

About the campaign

The campaign improves knowledge of the data and cyber security practices which can be adopted in our everyday work, to embed a culture of cyber security throughout the NHS. 

Materials have been designed to support NHS trusts and other health care organisations to run their own cyber security campaigns in a way that suits them and their organisations locally.  

Keep I.T. Confidential reinforces the message that data security is an extension of patient confidentiality and good patient care. It highlights cyber security threats and the actions that staff can take to mitigate risk. 

These areas include
  • weak passwords and password theft
  • phishing scams and emails
  • tailgaters at NHS sites
  • unlocked screens and devices
  • social engineering to manipulate people into divulging confidential or personal information
