The Healthcare Sector Coordinating Council, a public-private partnership of health care companies and providers developing collaborative solutions to mitigate threats to critical health care infrastructure, released a guide* to help health care organizations attract and retain skilled cybersecurity talent. The guide offers resources to help hiring managers and chief information security officers think about cyber workforce development as a continuum, from hiring students to transitioning information technology staff to cybersecurity responsibilities, developing and managing professional development programs for executive-track cybersecurity personnel, and outsourcing critical functions not otherwise resourced within the enterprise. “Attracting and retaining cybersecurity talent is a major challenge in all industry sectors,” said** Greg Garcia, executive director for cybersecurity at HSCC. “But as medical and wearable health care technology become more connected, patient safety will increasingly rely on cyber safety, and a skilled workforce is essential to finding that balance.”
