When implementing digital telecare, telecare service providers are likely to use a range of suppliers to provide the equipment and services that form the overall solution. For this reason, telecare service providers need to evaluate the cyber security risk associated with each supplier before integrating their equipment/service into the solution.
Digital Telecare has designed an assessment procedure to reduce the burden on suppliers to provide this evidence to multiple customer organisations and ensure a consistent and best practice approach is taken to cyber security. Please click the link below for full details of the assessment process:
Suppliers are assessed against their business processes related to cyber security. In addition, devices or services are also individually assessed and passed to be entered on to an 'Assessed Suppliers List'.
This List is available to telecare service providers who are engaging with the Digital Telecare Programme, within the Digital Telecare Playbook:
Suppliers can take part in the assessment process by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
