The ASSURED project aims to radically transform the secure access to health data in the UK and, as a result, accelerate innovation within the healthcare digital supply chain.
ASSURED will speed up the process by which new digital services are adopted within healthcare and will simultaneously reduce security risks associated with the management of personal health data. The project will combine N3 aggregation, security risk modelling and device compliance and monitoring techniques to create a new platform supporting the entire process covering application, assessment, approval and connection of services to the N3 network.Secure Society Big Data Decision Support Digital Innovation Platforms
ASSURED aims to reduce the time to approve the connection of digital services to the NHS network by an order of magnitude from up to a year to around one month. This is achieved via network modelling, assessment of threats via a knowledge base and by performing integrity and compliance monitoring. The image above gives an overview of the ASSURED platform.

This work originates from previous projects, such as SERSCIS and OPTET, and is also extended in recently started projects such as 5G-ENSURE (mobile network security), SHiELD (cross-border e-health) and RestAssured (Cloud data security).
The ASSURED project is a 21 month project funded by the Innovate UK.
