Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora have launched an online cyber security maturity assessment to better understand the security risks and requirements in Primary and Community Care.
The sector’s Chief Information Security Officer, Nancy Taneja, says this is important and timely.
“As many will know, we’re seeing an increase in cyber incidents in primary and community care. This assessment will help you understand your current cyber security status.”
The assessment, which is anonymised, includes 32 questions and is written in simple language covering most areas of digital and data security practices. If you do not think your practice received the maturity assessment, please contact Nancy directly (email below).
“We are already receiving completed assessments with good feedback coming in, which is fantastic.”
With your input, a cyber security programme can be co-designed to address the cyber security needs we discover across the sector.
“Some feel that cyber security is something for IT specialists to deal with, but many individuals and small businesses are vulnerable to scams and data loss. Cyber security now, and in the future, is shared mahi.”
