The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has been made aware of the matters in Secur Solutions Group’s (SSG) statement, both by SSG and through investigations by the Police.
2. It shows that there was more access to the data than had been initially assessed by SSG (as set out in HSA’s statement of 15 March 2019). However HSA's centralised blood bank system, which is not connected to the SSG server, remains secure.
3. HSA takes a serious view of this matter. SSG is in breach of its contractual obligations. Police investigations are continuing. HSA will decide on what steps it should take vis-à-vis SSG, once the investigations are concluded.
