Te Whatu Ora – Health NZ is rolling out Microsoft 365 E5 as part of a national cyber security programme it inherited from the Ministry of Health.

In 2021, the Ministry of Health assessed the current level of cyber security in the health sector, including the ministry’s digital systems, to identify and prioritise areas for improvement.

By the end of the year, the National Cyber Security Uplift programme had been established to increase cyber security maturity in the health sector from a rating 1.7 to 3.5 over three years.

The programme has ten building blocks, divided into three core areas for improvement, Te Whatu Ora told Parliament’s health select committee in July.

The first is improving sector capability including bringing in more cyber security skilled people, a refresh of the Health Information Security Framework to suit multiple user types and awareness and training for people working in the sector.
