The hard work and achievements of an inspiring individual who worked within NHS Informatics Merseyside’s Cyber Security Service were formally recognised at a national public health and social care cyber security awards ceremony which took place virtually on Friday 22 March 2024.

Ellis Di Caprio, who sadly passed away in February 2024, was awarded the cyber security ‘Individual of the Year Award’, in addition to the coveted ‘Pete Rose Outstanding Achievement Award’ at NHS England's 2024 Cyber Associates Network (CAN) Awards.

Steven Parker, Deputy Director of NHS Informatics Merseyside and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) said:

“Ellis was a much loved and valued member of our team, who despite facing health challenges, never let his illness define him or affect his dedication to cyber security or his team.

“Certainly, I feel there is no one more deserving of these awards and whilst it is extremely sad Ellis is no longer with us, it is heartening to know that his contributions to cyber security have been formally recognised and acknowledged NHS-wide. He will never be forgotten, and his legacy will continue to inspire us.”
