IT AND COMMUNICATIONS IN HEALTHCARE – DATA SECURITY

Network Defence : 30 April, 2009  (Special Report)
FOCUS ZONE REPORT IT and data security specialists, Network Defence is launching what is claimed to be the UK’s first ever N3 network vulnerability scanning service for NHS Trusts.
The service will ensure that NHS Trusts fully comply with Information Governance standards and regularly assess systems and networks for malicious threats and potential data loss.

The new service which is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK is set to kick off a new trend in N3 network security for NHS organisations looking to further protect their network.

David Beesley, Managing Director for Network Defence, said: “We are really excited about our new service as not only does it rigorously scan the N3 facing network for any weaknesses or potential threats, but it does this while the system is live - enabling us to identify any vulnerabilities without disrupting business continuity. This is crucial for busy organisations, such as NHS Trusts, who need to have access to their data at all times”.

“The service is already being used by one NHS organisation and with more and more security breach stories appearing in the press we believe that more NHS Trusts will see the benefits and look to take up the service.”

The service remotely checks the N3 facing network and identifies any weaknesses or vulnerabilities which could be exploited to provide NHS Trusts with a report which can be used to identify and target areas which need additional security.
