NHS: The lessons learned from WannaCry

On 1 February 2018 the UK Department of Health and Social Care (‘DHSC’) published its independent report entitled ‘Lessons learned review of the WannaCry Ransomware Cyber Attack’ (the ‘Report’). The stated aims of the Report were to analyse the lessons learned, assess the actions taken to date and to make clear recommendations on what further measures are required to ensure the entire health and social care system is as robust as it can be in reducing the risk and impact of a future cyber attack. Dan Hyde, Partner at Penningtons Manches, in this article examines the Report, providing insight into the background and context of the attack before assessing the Report’s findings.
