Earlier this year, a massive cyber-attack affected 200,000 organisations in 150 countries. The victims of the ‘Wannacry’ attack included 47 NHS trusts, leading to patients’ data being compromised, operations being cancelled and patients being turned away from A&E. It was a complete nightmare. Against the background of this kind of cyber-attack, there’s quite a bit of fear around when it comes to data protection. Consumers get nervous because they’re not sure who they can trust and just how safe their personal information is. As we’ve seen, when sensitive information falls into the wrong hands, it can be devastating. And companies are nervous because if they get something wrong, they could end up getting sued!
