An organisation, Cyber Volunteers 19 (CV19), is being set up to help people volunteer their IT security expertise and services to health services.
The idea is that IT security-savvy folks can help hard-working healthcare services battling the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, by volunteering their expertise in identifying, protecting, detecting and responding to existing and emerging cyber threats.
Cyber Volunteers 19- we are:
– giving advice
– providing intel
– promoting best practice
– caring collaborators
– volunteers- no money being paid!
We are NOT:
– a cyber army
– people who “hack back”
– corporate and personal promotion mechanism

Healthcare organisations are working under enough pressure at the moment without having the additional challenge of battling cyber threats. This is one way in which we can give a little back.
