Healthcare organisations are trustees of incredibly sensitive personal data and extremely large budgets – both of which are highly prized by hackers. And as the WannaCry outbreak clearly demonstrated in 2017, cybercriminals can – and do – attack hospitals and NHS trusts and doctors’ surgeries.
The impact of cybercrime on the healthcare industry is not purely financial either. If key clinical systems are taken offline, patients’ lives are in placed in danger.
Fidus provide a range of cost-effective cyber security services that will help you maximise your IT budget, including:
Fidus consultants are both TIGER and NCSC Check Green Light certified – so you can be sure we know how to handle confidential data securely and appropriately at all times.
The healthcare industry is bound by several data-related regulations – and Fidus can help ensure you are fully compliant with them all. By storing and processing health and social care data, your organisation is immediately bound by the obligations outlined in the National Data Guardian (NDG) Data Security Standards for instance.
Similarly, you have an obligation to protect personal data belonging to your patients. Under the General Data Protection Regulation, all EU citizens have a legal right to demand that their information is properly secured. Failure to meet that obligation can attract fines of up to €20m.
Fidus provide a complete suite of services for healthcare providers to ensure they are fully compliant, including:
Fidus can help you understand your current levels of compliance, and what needs to be done to achieve certification.

Introduction Quiplash – a game full of wit, banter and borderline acceptable humour… and security consultants on a lunch break. To set the scene, the date was 19th February 2020 and the mood was cheerful in the Fidus office. Lunch had just been delivered and today was the day that Mario Kart was not going […]
