In the NHS, patient confidentiality is regulated through the Data Protection Act. The Act stipulates that security and confidentiality measures should be in place to protect personal data. This legal requirement could be compromised by allowing sourcing of non certified equipment, which has no clear provenance and has software which has not been verified by the manufacturer.
Local Governments send and receive information across the Public Sector Network (PSN) which is rated at OFFICIAL under the Government Security Classification Policy. It is essential for all connected equipment to be manufacturer certified and to be sourced from authorized partners. How can savings be made, without compromising integrity ?
