Security Operations Centre for NHS Digital.
NHS Digital is looking to procure the services of a strategic partner to support the development and delivery of a Security Operations Centre (SOC), which will deliver enhanced cyber security capability and services to internal and external customers across the Health and Care sector.
NHS Digital's Data Security Centre (DSC), is responsible for providing a robust ‘defence in depth’ data security service to NHS Digital and the wider health and care sector, as well as operating the live security services provided through the extant CareCERT service.
NHS Digital are seeking a strategic partner to support development and delivery of enhanced cyber security capabilities and services for both its internal and external customers.
Key to the delivery of enhanced cyber security capability is the development of a new Security Operations Centre (SOC) for the organisation. The SOC will bring together disparate security functions and will allow standardisation of processes and technology within a single unified Security Operating Model (SOM).
NHS Digital intend to build on and enhance (rather than replace) the current services offered by CareCERT and the DSC that provide preparation, detection and response services to the health and care sector.
