On September 05 – 06th 2018, Secon Cyber in partnership with Trend Micro will be exhibiting at the Health and Care Innovation Expo 2018, known to be biggest NHS-led event in the calendar.
Being held at Manchester Central Convention Complex with a zone dedicated to Digital Technology, showcasing the best new digital innovations in health and care. The zone will additionally demonstrate the progress that has been made over the last 12 months to implement Digital Transformation programmes throughout NHS England.
Digital Transformation has become one of the core focuses within the NHS, especially after the WannaCry attack of May 2017, a global ransom attack that infected more than 230,000 computers in over 150 countries. Here in the UK, it paralysed 80 NHS trust and 600 odd NHS organisations and GPs leading to 6,912 appointments being cancelled.
And while the world was reeling with its ransom threats, we take pride in sharing that for one NHS trust it was not as big an issue, thanks to deploying our in house built platform – Managed Detection Response, a powerful cloud based log and event collection, management & detection monitoring system that provides 24X7X365 real-time human led incident response and remediation. As a result the malware was contained within 15 minutes, by bespoke policies created for WannaCry to stop propagating and the outbreak was dealt with within approximately two hours with no repeat infection, thus enabling this NHS Trust to continue with business as usual.
Here is just one example of many successful averted incidents.
Finally with an expected audience of over 5000 delegates as in the previous year, and more than 200 hours of speakers, workshops and sessions exploring the latest developments and innovations across health and social care, it sure promises to be an interesting event.
