Cyber risk management is increasingly challenging; exploits are becoming ever more variable and difficult to defend against whilst management are asking for more analysis and reporting – seeking assurances that its cyber security measures are working. Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust knew that a solid cyber risk management program requires reliable inventory and discovery at its foundation. How could the Trust hope to fully combat cyber risks without comprehensive visibility of what needs to be protected and where it is potentially weakest?
Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides general and specialist health services with 4,000 staff working out of 75 different sites across the City and the London borough of Hackney. Its primary site, Homerton Hospital, has almost 500 beds spread across 11 wards, a 9-bed intensive care unit and maternity, paediatric and neonatal wards. The Trust is recognised as an innovator in embracing methods and systems that promise better and safer patient care.
