Monitoring - Dear Colleague,

NHS Data Hack

You will no doubt be aware that some parts of the NHS were affected in a cyber-security incident on Friday 12th May 2017. This cyber-attack was a global phenomenon affecting thousands of organisations. The attack involved a type of malware, called “ransomware”, where computers are shut down and users presented with a screen demanding payment to unlock their system and data.

Please be reassured that if you are a user of any Invatech Technology including CAPA, PCS, Primo, Edo and Invalife, your data is safe and secure, and would not have been affected by this type of incident.

It has now been widely accepted that the attack exploited a weakness within the Windows Operating System. Microsoft had issued a “patch” to fix the weakness a few months ago and any computer which was up to date, was protected. However, those that either had not carried out the patch fix or continued to operate on older Operating Systems remained vulnerable. It was these organisations that were most affected by this incidence.

At Invatech Health, we take cyber security extremely seriously and have built our technology infrastructure to withstand such opportunistic attacks. Our data is never held on local computers and only accessible through remote sessions or synchronisation events. Data is retained in multiple, highly secure locations protected by firewalls. Further, we are certified by BSI and accredited to ISO 27001 data security standard, which includes the highest levels of external audit, and we carry out regular external Penetration Testing to ensure we remain vigilant of risk at all times.

Whilst Invatech will continue to uphold best practice and help protect your data and your business continuity where we are responsible for it, we advise that all businesses and organisations use this as an opportunity to review their systems and evaluate their risk. You should look at what data is held on local computers and whether those computers are using up to date operating systems.

If you have any concerns about this incident or would like help and advice on addressing data security, please do not hesitate to contact our security team at Invatech Health.

Yours sincerely,

Tariq Muhammad
