This webinar considered the range of common cyber attacks, their impact on care providers, and how to reduce and manage attacks. It also outlined a range of support offers to care providers from Digital Social Care, the National Cyber Security Centre and the Cyber Resilience Centres. Care providers can use the Data Security and Protection Toolkit to check their cyber security arrangements and demonstrate that they have good systems in place. This can reduce the risk of an attack, and reduce the risk of a fine if an attack is successful.
