2T Security Objective:
Our aim was to manage cyber security, to enable the Test and Trace programme to build and scale its services at a pace never seen within the Public Sector. Thereby contributing crucial support during the national emergency. The COVID-19 outbreak saw an unprecedented scope of work involving meticulous coordination of multiple moving parts.
This encompassed consideration of all aspects of the COVID-19 programme including: managing logistics with test kits and samples, collection of results, implementing robust contact tracing mechanisms, whole population data analytics, addressing considerations regarding international travel, support payments, and policy-to-process design. This comprehensive approach entailed the implementation of new systems and the substantial scaling of existing infrastructure to accommodate an extraordinary 1000-fold data volume increase.
2T Security Outcome:
- No reported security issues for any Test and Trace systems.
- Secured the delivery of 85 systems alongside a build up from 0 to 55,000 staff within 6 months.
- Avoided the stealth-creation of a National Identity Register whilst digitally collecting data about most of the population of the UK.
- 2T Security stepped in to resolve security concerns which enabled the rest of the organisation to focus on its urgent objectives.
