NHS Digital has announced a GBP 20 million cyber security initiative to boost NHS protection. It is looking for a partner to help with the project to bring in additional specialist expertise and increase capacity when needed. The contract will run for 3-5 years. 

The investment will be used to set up the new Security Operations Centre (SOC) to provide enhanced monitoring of national health and care services, and allow NHS Digital to improve its current capabilities in ethical hacking, vulnerability testing and forensic analysis of malicious software. The SOC will create a national, near real-time monitoring and alerting service covering the whole health and care system.
