Re: I almost hope it happens

That's not accurate at all. The NHS used money ring fenced by central government for security to purchase Windows 10 licenses for every work station within the NHS on the provision that Trusts had to connect them in to a new centrally provided ATP instance. They also funded a perimeter security project for firewalls targeted at critical trusts. There are other things in the pipeline that are yet to be made public. Why funded centrally? Because the trusts themselves simply don't have the budgets for IT infrastructure or IT staff which is why Wannacry was able to happen in the first place! But patching operations for similar vulnerabilities have been significantly reduced across the NHS.
