One high-profile ransomware cyberattack earlier this year was WannaCry, which badly affected several European organisations, including the National Health Service.
However, one exception was the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. “We didn’t get damaged by WannaCry because we took the decision to sever all external server links early,” said the Trust’s director of digital, Jag Ahluwalia.
Technology enables people to do their jobs properly, and customers and citizens to experience new digital services. At the same time, though, businesses have to become more resilient in an age when cybersecurity attacks occur with increasing frequency.
