New information packs and resources are now available on the NHS Digital website to help NHS and social care organizations run their own cybersecurity awareness campaigns.
The new resource is part of the existing Keep IT Confidential online cybersecurity awareness toolkit.
Launched by the NHS Digital Data Security Centre, a free resource to help NHS organizations run their own awareness campaigns in a way that suits them and at a time that suits them.
This toolkit includes a number of assets to help NHS staff become cyber-aware. The latest additions to our toolkit include screensavers, digital banners, sticky notes, social media graphics for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and animations.
The aim is to improve staff knowledge and understanding of cybersecurity concerns. This may include activities and incidents such as phishing, unauthorized data sharing, unlocked screens, and weak passwords.
said Mike Fell, Executive Director of Cyber Operations at NHS Digital.
“We know how busy our staff are, but we encourage everyone to prioritize mitigating security risks wherever possible to protect the NHS and social care from vulnerabilities.
“Taking small, easy steps in our daily work and thinking about security can make a big difference. We hope these resources can help drive that change.”
There are two sets of campaign materials. One is for clinical staff and the other is for people working in the adult social services sector.
Last June, NHS Digital updated its Keep IT Confidential campaign to help social care organizations improve their security culture within care environments.
