H-ISAC “Hobby” Exercises –
A call for member engagement
The Health Sector Hobby Exercises are named after Overta Culp Hobby – the
first Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare in the United States. In
keeping with her pioneering excellence in healthcare, the H-ISAC will plan and execute a series of cybersecurity related exercises. The exercises are intended
to engage a cross-section of top-level public and private sector leaders.
The first exercise will commence in February, 2020 in Washington, DC. At
present, H-ISAC is recruiting member organizations for both planning and
exercise play. Seats are limited as we strive for diverse sub-sector
participation. To be a part of this important activity reach out to:
