Health-ISAC Supports the Global Health Sector

Join Health-ISAC, the only community committed to ensuring secure healthcare services around the world enabling an All Hazards approach.

The community is primarily focused on sharing timely, actionable and relevant information with each other including intelligence on threats, incidents and vulnerabilities that can include data such as indicators of compromise, tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) of threat actors, advice and best practices, mitigation strategies and other valuable material. Sharing can occur via machine to machine or human to human. Health-ISAC also fosters the building of relationships and networking through a number of educational events in order to facilitate trust. Working groups and committees focus on topics and activities of importance to the sector. Shared Services offer enhanced services to leverage the Health-ISAC community for the benefit of all.

Hobby TTX Video:

Health-ISAC provides opportunities for member organizations to benefit by participating in emergency based incident simulations known as table top exercises. The Hobby Exercise is an annual Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) event designed to engage the healthcare sector and strategic partners on significant security and resilience challenges. The objective is to inform stakeholders, identify gaps and provide opportunities for continuous improvement while increasing healthcare sector resiliency.


Watch and listen as Health-ISAC members discuss the benefits of engaging in the HOBBY exercise held in Washington, DC, in July 2022, to test their abilities in times of unforeseen duress in both cyber and physical attacks or all hazard events.
