REF:            2017-314

Subject:        Cyber attack

    

 

Request:

  1. The total amount your trust has spent on upgrading computers following the WannaCry ransomware attack reported on 12th May 2017.
  2. The number of computers running Windows XP software still in operation across the hospitals that are within your trust.

 

 

Response:

1. The total amount your trust has spent on upgrading computers following the WannaCry ransomware attack reported on 12th May 2017. Zero because the project already started replacing the Windows XP machines.
2. The number of computers running Windows XP software still in operation across the hospitals that are within your trust. Refused under section 31(1): prejudice to law enforcement

 

The Trust view is that disclosure of the information would prejudice our ability to resist cyber-attacks on our systems.
