Cyber Security Enhancements to the Incident Reporting Tool – Now Live (27/02/2015)

The External Information Governance Delivery Team has been working with stakeholders to further enhance the Incident Reporting Tool to capture Cyber incidents and it is now live. See Change Release Note for further detail.

National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) and stakeholders in the Department of Health (DH) requested the Health and Social Care Information Centre to enhance the functionality, content and guidance within the IG Toolkit Incident Reporting Tool to cover related cyber incidents.

This allows informatics / cyber security incidents, not fully covered in the current service, to be reported, details of actions recorded and automatic alerts to be generated.

This will provide an important source of security knowledge which will be used to inform the network of SIRO’s and future developments.

Level 2 Cyber Security Incidents will be notified to the Department of Health and HSCIC only.

For further information please read the updated guidance materials and statements listed below:-
