Health-ISAC Hobby Exercise 2022

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.

Why “Hobby”?:

Oveta Culp Hobby (1905-1995) was an American politician and businessperson who served as the first United States Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare from 1953-1955. She was only the second woman to ever serve in a presidential cabinet.
