Compliance, Governance and Assurance


Assurance Dashboard Solution

Providing a single, real-time view of the assurance and compliance levels of your entire NHS IT estate

Without a truthful and trustworthy view of your NHS IT estate, how can you possibly know the true strength of your cyber posture and levels of assurance and compliance?

The ITHealth Assurance Dashboard Solution consolidates all areas of your cyber security into a single, real-time view – giving you complete, at-a-glance visibility of everything happening in your network.  It increases understanding of the risks you face and levels of compliance at both a local and NHS Digital level. Most importantly, it gives you justified confidence in your assurance – at all times.

Key features

  • An automated asset management and network inventory tool continuously scans all hardware and software – in fact, all IP addressable assets – on your NHS network and exposes the information in an intuitive dashboard interface.
  • A granular level of detail is supplied for each asset found, including for example: serial number, the last logged on Windows user, and remaining disk space – even devices using default passwords are identified.
  • Data is fed into tailored status reports along with added ITHealth intelligence, so the dashboard displays only the most critical security information relevant to your NHS cyber defences and compliance.
  • Status reports include, for example: Anti-Virus and Windows update status, encryption status, CareCERT alert compliance, active directory and user trends…the list goes on.
  • As it’s a managed solution, ITHealth can create and add new status reports specific to your NHS organisation, if requested.
  • CareCERT alerts are added once released so you can rapidly assess associated risks, level of compliance and remediation required – as well as monitor the number of outstanding / resolved issues in near real-time
  • ITHealth provide periodic snapshot summaries of the real-time information to feed into hygiene and / or board reports; key trends are highlighted so you can demonstrate progress over time.

Reviews

It’s a solution that allows us to effectively aggregate a number of asset management and security dashboards into one central resource. We now go to one place to get a clear view of the network.

Sean Devine

Infrastructure Manager

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

We were impressed with the speed in which the Dashboard allowed us to view and report on our exposure to the recent high severity CareCERT alert [CC-3176, issued 14th August 2019]. Previously, it took specialist knowledge using 3rd party tools to generate scripts that would interrogate the network and identify the same information; this was time-consuming and relied on having the correct skill sets available to perform the task. The ITHealth Assurance Dashboard Solution automated the whole process for us.

What I like best is that this system takes away any guesswork and opportunity for error in reporting; it presents a picture of the network and systems as they really are - making it easier to visualise risks and present accurate solutions.

It is such a good product and the service wrap really helps sell it; it is certainly one of the easiest and most compelling business cases I have had to write.

The ITHealth Assurance Dashboard gives us clarity on the true level of vulnerabilities that exist within our IT estate and helps us to proactively address them.

Daniel Woodruffe

Former Chief Information Officer

East London NHS Foundation Trust

Our aim was to get a simpler and more independent view of the state of our IT estate to better manage vulnerabilities and assure customers. What we actually got was so much more.
