What is CareCERT?

NHS Digital has been commissioned by the Department of Health to develop a Care Computer Emergency Response Team (CareCERT).

CareCERT will offer advice and guidance to support health and social care organisations to respond effectively and safely to cyber security threats.

This is because:

  • There is a rising risk of cyber threat across all sectors.
  • Delivering a central service will provide coordination in dealing with the cyber threat.
  • NHS Digital is a cyber security centre of excellence, and health and social care organisations will benefit from the latest technological knowledge and world class guidance developed by experts.
