Windows & SQL Server Extended Support Implementation

Closed 17 May 2020

Opened 24 Feb 2020


Following the negotiation of new arrangements for Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for Windows 2008 and SQL 2008 Servers, it is essential that local NHS organisations have clear plans in place to manage the cybersecurity risks associated with these legacy products.

This very short survey therefore asks you to confirm:

1. That your organisation has a clear plan in place to address this if it has not already done so.

2. Confirm your status with implementing that plan.

3. Highlight any key issues that are preventing or hindering you from migrating to supported products so we can consider any further central intervention that may be necessary.

Thank you


What happens next

Thank you for your response. It is much appreciated.

If all matters are clearly in hand or resolved, then please accept our thanks for addressing this matter so promptly.

If there are any further questions or siginificant residual risks to be addressed, we will contact you further to discuss.
