The Committee will build upon this list as we go and looks forward to Member input to help shape it. We will share information, updates, and resources via our Member Portal. If interested, please reach out to us at contact@h-isac.org.  We are looking to host our first meeting soon.





Fewer Emails / More Control

Health-ISAC has nearly 600 members on-boarded onto “Cyware” – our collaborative situational awareness and information sharing system that delivers cyber and physical threat intelligence to you and your co-workers.  Cyware allows you to customize exactly what information you receive and how it’s delivered from Health-ISAC — through email, an easy-to-use mobile app and a web portal.


After December 2020, Threat Operations Center (TOC) products will no longer be sent via email distribution lists. Cyware will become the primary method of delivery for cyber and physical threat intelligence reports.


Cyware has other neat capabilities as well – including a Member Directory, Alert Repository, Document Library, Quick Polling and Incident Submissions.  Watch for Health-ISAC announcements about live webinars where we will demo the product and answer your questions.


To get set up on Cyware, please contact Health-ISAC Membership Services — contact@h-isac.org.
