NHS Test and Trace bolsters cyber defence

NHS Test and Trace has chosen cyber security company Risk Ledger to manage cyber security risks in their supply chain.

The platform, established to track and prevent the spread of Covid-19, will use the company’s ‘social network’ which enables organisations to connect and share data securely.

NHS Test and Trace will use the network to improve visibility of the supply chain and a comprehensive set of data to identify, measure and mitigate supply chain security risks at scale.

“The government is working tirelessly to secure the nation online and grow the UK's £8.9 billion cyber security industry as we build back better from the pandemic,” said Matt Warman, digital infrastructure minister. “We're helping SMEs develop innovative products and services and it's great to see Risk Ledger, one of the firms we've supported, win this contract to protect the Test and Trace system and support the national effort against coronavirus.”
