Errol Weiss, chief security officer at the Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Health-ISAC), said businesses should heed Ascencion’s directive to disconnect but shouldn’t overreact. “Shutting down services and disconnecting from more systems than recommended will only make the incident impact worse,” he said.

Health-ISAC is following the Ascension incident and is prepared to provide any information it is permitted to share as soon as possible, Weiss said.
