A day as a network manager

You work at your local NHS hospital, beginning at 9am.

This morning, you're updating security on the hospital computer network, so no one can hack in and view confidential patient data. You send emails requesting that all staff change passwords, and update the encryption settings on the hospital intranet.

Next, you back up all electronic patient data entered over the last month, and ensure it's stored securely. In the afternoon, you have a meeting with the finance team and an external supplier to discuss the possible upgrade of the telephone system throughout the hospital. You enjoy using your skills to help others, and contributing to the smooth running of a life-saving establishment.
