This means the MTI will be able to provide ‘Specialist Security Services’ to NHS Digital in their efforts to improve the cyber security posture across the healthcare system in England.

The ‘Specialist Security Services framework’ is worth roughly £20 million, and it enables the NHS to access more capacity and expert capability to support the health and care organisation, ensuring the patient and clinical benefits of new technology in health are maximised while risks are reduced.
