The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has announced that UK healthcare businesses will be invited to receive free cyber certification and training. As part of London Tech Week, Digital Infrastructure Minister Matt Warman said that hundreds of businesses would benefit from the scheme, which is funded by a £500,000 government grant. Training will include updating all devices, installing firewalls and managing user access. Warman added: “I urge all organisations to sign up to the government’s Cyber Essentials programme which contains a number of simple steps firms can take to get the fundamentals of good cybersecurity in place.”
