The cyber threat to the Healthcare industry has increased dramatically in recent years, it is no longer unusual for a direct attack on systems that are designed to cause significant disruption to community services and reputational damage.

Cyber-attacks are of particular concern for the health sector because attacks can directly threaten not just the security of systems and information but also the health and safety of patients.
