“Cyber security is how individuals and organisations reduce the risk of cyber attack.” – National Cyber Security Centre

A cyber attack is any attack on technology. For example, on mobiles, computers or online. We all know that this can happen, but often it is difficult to know what to do to prevent a cyber attack. Or what to do when one happens.

For this reason, we collaborated with NHS Digital’s Social Care Programme, the Care Provider Alliance, Skills for Care and the National Cyber Security Centre to produce an Introduction to Cyber Security. This is aimed at helping small care providers with their cyber security.
