NHS procurement platform Edge4Health has implemented an integrated cyber security feature to help improve the security of the NHS supply chain.
The Edge4Health, developed by British software company VirtualStock, is being rolled out to more than 60 NHS organisations and will be used by around 30,000 NHS employees.
The platform now enables suppliers to the NHS to check and improve their cyber security through a rating system.
Suppliers can download a report that provides a detailed explanation of the specific threats and vulnerabilities affecting their individual organisation. Reports show exactly how suppliers can reduce their vulnerabilities, enabling them to improve their own security and that of the NHS.
The functionality has been developed by leading cyber threat intelligence and cyber-risk management company, Orpheus Cyber.
