Scope and content

The county's biggest NHS Trust has vowed to remain 'vigilant' after figures revealed it had been hit by five cyber attacks in the past year. Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was targeted unsuccessfully five times in 2016 in 'ransomware' attacks, according to recent figures. Dr Rasmussen, who has researched the threat to sharing health data over wireless systems, said it was down to individuals to be vigilant. More information in the cutting.
