Description

Better Security, Better Care (BSBC) is a national programme to improve data and cyber security in the Adult Social Care provider sector. It is led by a programme board whose members include NHS Transformation Directorate, NHS Digital, NHS England and Improvement, the Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) and, on behalf of the care provider sector, Digital Social Care.

The BSBC programme supports the adult social care sector with resources and assistance to help care providers complete the Data Security & Protection Toolkit (DSPT). With the Adult Social Care sector being so diverse, this also means the supply chain is equally as broad. As the sector becomes more digitised cyber security becomes an increasing issue and understanding the supply chain is necessary to gain the fullest picture of Adult Social Care and ensure that every area can be as protected from cyber threats as possible.

This project will deliver an analytical report on the resilience and consistency of the Adult Social Care supply chain. This will allow Better Security Better Care and the sector to build on the lessons learned from recent incidents and provide further security and protection to the Adult Social Care supply chain, which will in turn better protect the sector.
