Spring Summit Keynote


H-ISAC is proud to introduce the Wednesday, May 13, 2020 Spring Summit Keynote Speaker :

Aaron C. Rouse—Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Las Vegas Division.

On July 28, 2016, FBI Director James B. Comey named Aaron Rouse as the Special Agent in Charge of the Las Vegas Division. He
oversaw the response and investigation of the shooting at Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Los Vegas. Mr. Rouse most recently
served as Section Chief in the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters (FBI HQ). Mr. Rouse began his career with the FBI in
September 1996, and was first assigned to the Washington Field Office (WFO) where he worked violent crime and was on both the
Joint Fugitive Task Force and the Violent Crime/Reactive squads. In October 2014, Mr. Rouse was appointed as the Section Chief for the
Clandestine Operations Section in the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters. Prior to entering the FBI, Mr. Rouse was a state
trooper in the New York State Police.

Our Spring “Strike Back” Summit will be held May 11-15 in Palm Harbor, Florida at the Innisbrook Resort and Spa  – Home to the Valspar PGA.

Registration is OPEN! Accommodations discount rate available until April 19

As a follow-up to the Products and Services roadmap introduced at the Fall Summit, H-ISAC staff has been working diligently and is proud
to show transparency in the development of a comprehensive roadmap. At any point in time, members can check the current roadmap status
on the P&S Roadmap page, located in the Member Portal.

Questions or ideas concerning new solutions for the membership are welcomed.



H-ISAC held the inaugural “Hobby” Exercise last month on February 12, 2020, held in Washington, DC.

Attendees from the public and private sector came together in a facilitated discussion to collaborate regarding
cybersecurity challenges within the US Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) sector. The exercise is named after
Oveta Culp Hobby, who became the first US Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in 1953. The After Action
Report and Lessons Learned will be shared with the H-ISAC membership and our partners in the coming weeks.
