The document from Optima Energy is aimed at IT and energy professionals working in healthcare

A new guide aimed at helping NHS energy and IT professionals beat the growing threat of cyber-crime has been published by energy management software company, Optima.

Optima Energy’s The Good Sleep Guide provides insight into the ‘seven ways the NHS can prevent energy data security nightmares’.

The publication, which is available to download on the company’s website, comes at a time when it is seeing increased interest from NHS trusts and other public-sector organisations seeking to better protect their energy data from the growing threat of cyber attacks and the ensuing regulatory action.

Steve Kemp, business development director at Optima Energy, said: “When it comes to energy data security, we believe there is a role for specialists like Optima Energy to guide healthcare professionals and organisations through the entire process – from ensuring the software they are using meets current and future requirements, to undertaking regular updates and health checks once the system has been installed.

“We have published our e-book to show energy and IT professionals working within the healthcare sector how we can help keep them protected for the long-term.

“The number of online threats may be growing all the time, but by investing in secure energy management software, they can have peace of mind and let our experts take the strain.

“The e-book also covers other non-security issues facing NHS energy professionals including the need for validation of pass through costs on energy bills.”
