    In the lead-up to the Public Cyber Security event on 7 December at the ICC, this webinar provides practical insights into the role of professional and local communities in helping NHS organisations to manage the growing cyber risk to the NHS.

    Since WannaCry, we’ve since seen a plethora of programmes emerge which provide a system-level architecture for protecting the public from cyber harm.

    But what about implementation at the local level? How do we ensure NHS organisations have access to cyber professionals to provide guidance in ensuring good practice is implemented? And what approaches can be taken to ensure that boards are aware of and can manage the risks to their organisation?
