Cyber attack on the NHS

Cyber attack on the NHS The Public Accounts Committee states that the WannaCry cyber-attack on Friday 12 May 2017, was a wake-up call for the NHS. The Department of Health and Social Care and its arm's-length bodies were unprepared for the relatively unsophisticated WannaCry attack; they had not shared and tested plans for responding to a cyber-attack, nor had any trust passed a cyber-security inspection.The report sets an end of June deadline for the Department of Health and Social Care to provide anupdate on costed plans for vital security investment.
