In the modern world, cyber attacks are a case of ‘when, not if’, and the social care system is no exception. This means that we must ensure that every organisation across the system is equipped to minimise both the impact of a cyber incident and the time it takes to recover from it.

Join this Better Security, Better Care webinar in partnership with the Homecare Association to consider:

  • Typical cyber attacks and how to reduce the risk of falling victim to an attack
  • The impact of a cyber attack on social care services – with a particular focus on homecare
  • Steps you can take to reduce the risk and impact
  • National, regional and local support for care providers, including the Data Security and Protection Toolkit and Better Security, Better Care.

Our main guest speaker is David Glover, Joint Chief Executive of Caremark – one of the largest homecare services in the UK, based on a franchise model. David will reflect on the impact of a cyber attack on Caremark, and what they did to recover and plan for the future.

The webinar is part of Better Security, Better Care’s programme of activities for National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October 2023.
