Cylera Cyber Alert Dashboard

Easy, Efficient, Rapid Response to Meet NHS Digital Requirements

NHS Healthcare IT and security teams are always busy and overloaded. When NHS Digital provides high severity alerts, this dashboard makes it easy and fast to manage response and workflow in one spot.”

— Phil Howe, CTO at Core to Cloud

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2022 / — Cylera, the pioneer in IoT and medical device cybersecurity and intelligence, today announced a new dashboard and features within the Cylera MedCommand™ Platform, developed specifically to help its U.K. National Health Service (NHS) Trust customers more rapidly meet response requirements to NHS Digital high severity cyber alerts (formerly CareCERT).

NHS Trusts are required to respond quickly to cyber threat notifications received from NHS Digital’s Data Security Centre (DSC) and must acknowledge receipt of high severity cyber alerts within 48 hours to help protect against the rise in high severity exploits that could impact patient care, privacy, and service continuity.

“Given the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape, NHS Trusts need to quickly acknowledge and respond to high severity cyber alerts,” said Phil Howe, Chief Technology Officer at Core to Cloud, formerly Deputy Chief Technology Officer with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust. “Information Technology (IT) and security teams always have large task lists and many other urgent needs demanding their attention, so a dashboard like this really helps IT have all the information they need in one view.”

“Cylera wanted to make it extremely easy for Trusts to quickly respond to NHS Digital cyber alerts, and provide very time-efficient workflows,” said Paul Bakoyiannis, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and co-founder at Cylera. “The new Cyber Alert Dashboard provides access to all current and historical cyber alerts, and through our analysis, users can immediately tell what systems are affected in the Cylera register of medical and IoT devices. The whole response workflow can be managed from one dashboard; receipt, assignment, resolution, and timely reporting back to NHS Digital for compliance purposes.”

The new dashboard features a single dashboard view that brings all the current and historical NHS Digital cyber alerts into view in one place, from which customers can manage the entire process of receiving and responding to cyber alerts, including the ability to sort by severity, date published, affected devices, alert type, status, who is assigned, last updated by, etc. At-a-glance, the immediate status and who is working on it can be seen and even exported as a file for NHS Digital and others if needed.

The dashboard can also be an online source of verification for auditors who may be assisting NHS Trusts to help meet their 2022 DSPT Data Security and Protection Toolkit requirements. The dashboard is informed by other capabilities within Cylera: asset inventory and management, vulnerability assessment, risk analysis, threat detection, fleet optimisation, security compliance, and its proprietary threat intelligence database.

“NHS Trusts are having to play catch up after COVID and are still strapped for resources. There is a backlog of IT system changes and a huge growth in medical devices that is changing the threat surface,” said Richard Staynings, Chief Security Strategist at Cylera. “One of the greatest challenges faced by Trusts is to understand what exactly is connected to their networks, and what risks these systems pose. Many Trusts are still catching up, such as in the 2022 requirement for organisations to have a register of medical devices. Unfortunately, few today have the needed visibility into their estate assets, and this makes it difficult to respond when a high severity cyber alert comes out.”
