It’s been revealed that the NHS has spent £20m on the set up of an ethical hacking security centre to combat digital attacks. Not a figure or statement that you’ll see on the side of the bus but it is an interesting story. It’s a large sum of money and sleeping peacefully at night you would take for granted that an organisation the size of the NHS has this stuff covered, yet it hasn’t.
Ethical hacking has always been a concept that I’ve liked in that super intelligent techies help fight the good fight for the good guys and using their skills, they highlight vulnerabilities but I wonder what cost analysis has been done to justify the £20 million.
