The NHS Greater Manchester Shared Services has received the international information security standard ISO 27001. This is one of the first NHS organisations to receive such a prestigious information security standard, demonstrating their dedication to protecting customer and patient information from a wide range of cyber threats. IT Security Manager Phil Scott said: “There have been a number of major data breaches in the healthcare industry, which highlighted the vulnerability of the NHS to cyber-attacks. We wanted to reassure our customers that we are committed to keeping data safe and leading the way in cybersecurity, so ISO 27001 certification was the clear choice.”
