The NHS is made up of more than 8,000 organisations, with many more across the wider health and care sector.
The NHS is a constant target for cyber-criminals so robust cyber security is critical for the future of the service. Not only because of the volume of personal and sensitive data that it holds, but also the significant impact that bringing NHS organisations to a stand-still has on the wider community.
We work with a number of NHS Trusts providing them with reassurance through the delivery of world-class security technologies including Palo Alto, Microsoft (inc. ATP), Kaspersky, VMware Carbon Black among others.
All our solutions are designed around your current services to centralise alerts and activity into a single location. We also provide full proof of concept for all our proposed solutions.
Experienced and qualified team of experts
CyberGuard’s CREST accredited security consultants and analysts are highly experienced and work with global threat intelligence feeds to ensure that all our security services are ready to prevent, detect and protect against the latest evolving threats.
We have experience of working with a range of organisations across the Public Sector, including NHS Trusts, local Councils and education providers and understand the needs of the sector. We also have specific experience of helping NHS Trusts to comply with the requirements of the Data Security and Protection Toolkit.
Every organisation is different and that is why we work closely with our customers to design and implement a suite of services that best meet your needs. These include:
A proven approach to meeting the requirements laid out by NHS Digital and the DSPT
Here’s an example of a recent project undertaken using our proven methodologies to deliver complete peace of mind for a Midlands-based NHS Trust:
Initially we set up a critical Incident Response service for the Trust. This allowed our SOC Team to investigate, react and remediate any threats at the source. This provided the Trust with a reactive service that they can call upon in the event of a cyber-incident.
The second phase of the project was designed to improve the communication between all existing security products. Utilising their current method, we created a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solution whereby all security products communicate and send alerts to a centralised location. This provided us with a clearer picture of any potential threats to the Trust and removed any duplication of checking the same threat picked up on multiple devices.
CyberGuard provides a fully managed end-to-end service and works seamlessly alongside internal IT teams providing added resource, reassurance and expertise as required. Our teams provide a proactive service monitoring alerts, patch updates and policy changes which are reviewed and implemented as agreed with the Trust.
Each project is tailored to provide the services and specialist resources as required by the Trust. Whilst we have access to an extensive team of experts, we pride ourselves on maintaining a personal level of service with small teams assigned to individuals Trusts to provide continuity and an in-depth knowledge of their specific infrastructure and internal set up.
“As a Trust we have been very impressed with CyberGuard’s knowledge, response and proactivity. While this has only been in place for a short period of time, we have full confidence that our security has been strengthened and will continue to be on the forefront.”
