Large numbers of Bolton Hospital data breach incidents unsurprising
It’s unsurprising that there’s been so many Bolton Hospital data breach incidents. With the health sector leading the way in terms of data breaches, we often help people claiming for NHS data breach compensation.
The NHS is also a top target for hackers. With many Trusts and hospitals still using outdated systems and equipment that’s not always as secure, they can be a soft target. The WannaCry incident of 2017 was a testament to how dangerous this can be, and how easy it can be to breach soft targets like the NHS.
The impact of an NHS breach can be serious. In fact, with events like the WannaCry incident causing shutdowns and chaos, a data breach could be life-threatening. Clearly, more funding is needed by the government to protect the NHS and its patients.
