Source: National Cyber Security News

Every single one of the 200 NHS trusts in the UK so far assessed for cyber security resilience has failed an onsite assessment, MPs on the Public Accounts Committee were told yesterday.

There are a total of 236 trusts. There is no timeline on when the remaining thirty-six will be checked over.

In a hearing about the WannaCry incident last June, entitled “Cyber-attack on the NHS”, Rob Shaw, deputy chief exec of NHS Digital, denied it was the case that those bodies who didn’t get a passing grade had not done anything over cyber security.

He said: “The amount of effort it takes for NHS providers in such a complex estate to reach the cyber essential plus standard that we assess against… is quite a high bar. Some of them have failed purely on patching, which is what the vulnerability was around Wannacry.”

He added: “Some of them need to do a considerable amount of work, but a number of them are on a journey [to] meeting that requirement.”

Shaw said NHS Digital “may want to consider whether to re-inspect those at the highest risk, now we have the additional funding.”

Will Smart, chief information officer at NHS Improvement, said that since the incident £21m has been invested in improved cybersecurity, while another £150m has been identified to improve national systems and resilience over the next two years.

Court told of millionaire’s ‘shopping list’ of items for girlfriend’s murder

Bride Who Was Told She Would Never Walk Again Dances At Her Wedding

In 2008, Jaquie Goncher of Marietta, Georgia was paralyzed from the neck down after she dove into a friend’s pool and broke her neck.

Initially, Goncher’s surgeon told her the chances of her walking again were “too small to put a percentage on” ― but the grim prognosis didn’t deter her. 

A year before her May 22 wedding in Atlanta, Georgia, she made it her goal to stand on the big day without the use of her wheelchair. And when the date came, she surprised guests by not only walking down the aisle, but also standing most of the day and even dancing at the reception.
