THE cyber security team at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) has been shortlisted for a Cyber Associates Network (CAN) Award in the Cyber Team of the Year category.
The new awards ceremony, hosted by NHS Digital, is an opportunity to recognise and shine a light on the innovation and expertise involved with increasing cyber security and resilience to protect patient and staff data across the National Health Service (NHS).
The team have worked hard to test, review and introduce a number of technical solutions to enhance cyber security at the hospital within a short time frame; the team have also hosted a series of staff training sessions to highlight potential cyber security risks that could arise and explain best practice on how to manage them.
Jeff Wood, deputy director of ICT at PAHT, said: “I am extremely proud that the team have been nominated for this award in recognition of their dedication and fantastic efforts.
“They continuously strive to enhance our cyber security services and put our patients and people at the heart of everything that they do.
“Going forwards, the team plan to host regular cyber security sessions with technical experts to see how cyber security can be further improved and create a cyber-security online booklet to increase cyber security knowledge and how people can remain safe at home and within the workplace.
“We are looking forward to the virtual awards ceremony that is due to take place on 28 March.”
