About Advanced Threat Protection programme

This programme has been developed in partnership with NHS Digital, with the aim to upskill NHS administrators to use the Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) service. This new service, purchased centrally by the Department of Health and Social Care, is for the benefit of local NHS organisations and the NHS as a whole. It is part of a broader portfolio of data and cyber security services managed by NHS Digital.

ATP monitors telemetry generated by Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 as well as previous Windows versions via the Microsoft Monitoring Agent. This telemetry is sent to a central collector where algorithms are used to look for any abnormal operating behaviour. If an abnormality is discovered alerts are generated in the ATP Portal for review by the nominated ATP Administrators. Additionally, ATP can be configured to send alert notifications by email. ATP can be configured automatically, on a per organisation basis, to isolate a machine to stop any malware infection spreading.

Administrators across the NHS need to be upskilled in using ATP’s features and its dashboards so they can improve their organisational resilience to cyber security threats.

The following sessions are available:

1. Introduction to ATP
2. Threat Analytics
3. Threat and Vulnerability Management
4. Understanding Alerts and Incidents
5. Managing ATP Incidents and Alerts
6.Using Power BI to Access ATP’s Reporting APIs

Further sessions are planned in the future.
