GET READY FOR THE NEXT SUMMIT!
HEALTH-ISAC Hybrid Spring Summit
Secured in Paradise May 18-20, 2021
Following the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the attendees at our inaugural Hybrid 2020 Fall Summit, the Spring Summit will also be a combination of attendees, presenters, and sponsors both on-site in Naples, Florida and via our successful virtual platform. One attendee summed up the virtual experience,
“It has been a welcome, fun outlet during what has otherwise been a difficult nine months filled with long workdays at home and an absence of the interpersonal opportunities I value so much in the physical workplace. But the real “prizes” that this Summit offers are the extremely valuable sessions presented by very accomplished and knowledgeable peers, and the networking opportunities with vendors and information security professionals.”
Call for Papers is Open!
YOUR CHANCE TO SHINE! Get a conversation started by sharing your challenges andsuccesses. We are seeking dynamic speakers eager to collaborate with peers around topics such as Incident Response Playbooks, Email Retention Policies, Training & Awareness, Cloud Security, and other relevant topics.

H-ISAC THREAT OPERATIONS CENTER
Health-ISAC continues to provision more members on the Cyware Intelligence portal and information sharing platform. We have over 700 people on Cyware today. By the time you read this, we’ll be finished with some mailing list updates to help eliminate members who are getting duplicate intelligence emails from the Threat Operations Center.
Members who have not taken advantage of the Cyware Intelligence portal — you’re missing out on enhanced sector resilience and improved collaboration. In this platform, H-ISAC members are sharing and consuming actionable cyber threat intelligence. Cyware allows the user to easily customize exactly what Health-ISAC information he/she chooses to receive or not receive and how it’s delivered (Email, mobile app, Tablet or Secure Web portal).

H-ISAC PRODUCTS & SERVICES
In response to the SolarWinds SUNBURST/SUPERNOVA malware incident, Prevalent offered the Healthcare Vendor Network (HVN) customers insight into third party vendors impacted by the event, including if they had remediated the vulnerability from their environments. Prevalent distributed a questionnaire to the HVN vendors to help third party partners share information to all Prevalent Healthcare Customers quickly. The outputs will help H-ISAC Members that are Prevalent Customers quickly gather status on vendor exposure related to the SolarWinds event for risk realization, impact and overall HVN ecosystem security health.
As of January 25, 2021, Prevalent collected 263 responses from vendors in their network, with 155 (59%) indicating they completed remediation, 11 (4%) were in progress, 82 (31%) had not started remediation and 15 (6%) said they had been impacted by the incident. H-ISAC will continue to share these results as we get updates from Prevalent.
