NHS boards in Scotland to share £1m9th October 2008
The Scottish Government is providing NHS boards across the country with a share of £1m from its eHealth budget to improve their IT security.
The initiative will start with securing USB ports and be used to help boards comply with new government standards. The 14 NHS boards will receive a share of the money to help them implement the software needed to lock-down computer USB ports. The move is primarily intended to ensure the security of laptops and USB memory sticks but also applies to other mobile devices such as BlackBerrys.
