Here’s what people have to say about H-ISAC

The Hybrid Summit offered a much needed virtual getaway…

I really appreciated the gamification elements of the conference. The competitive side of me has enjoyed “the game” and it has been a welcome, fun outlet for me 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 other information security professionals. I am truly grateful that the Summit was available virtually this year, and for all H-ISAC does for the healthcare infosec community. 

From a member (CIO at a behavioral health organization)

H-ISAC’s crucial threat intelligence… 

As we are heading towards the end of 2020, we can now tell how crucial TI [threat intelligence] has become to our network security this year. Information sharing and mutual learning via H-ISAC has made us more knowledgeable and capable to deal with the evolving cyber security challenges.

From a member (Threat Intelligence Analyst at a global pharmaceuticals company)

Relevant information, a strong defensive posture… 

Every single day I’m getting emails that are important, that matter. We collaborate with our peers to figure out “Hey, what are you doing? Here’s what we’re doing. Does it match up? Can we learn something?” Without H-ISAC, the [member organizations] would not be in the same defensive posture as they are right now.

From a Director of Cyber Risk Defense at a healthcare system

Collectively stronger together… 

I think we’ve done what other industries wish they could do and trust each other in a way where we can be successful collectively. Together. The H-ISAC [sharing community] has a lot to be thankful for and proud of. We have advanced our industry, advanced our community and put in the work to make sure we are collectively stronger together and that is an amazing feat.

From a VP, CISO at a Pharmaceutical Company

Expedient shared intelligence… 

[As a member], you get to constantly watch where the puck is headed and know the “gotchas” before the hitting, so it’s great! There has been real growth in the maturity and the open transparency with which the [members] are sharing information.

From a CISO at a healthcare delivery organization

An expansion of our security team.. 

From the moment we joined, it was like flicking on a light switch – we got so much information and it has been invaluable. H-ISAC really helped us expand our staffing because we have a small intelligence footprint. Not a day goes by that we don’t share into H-ISAC and work with other members. Threat actors are trying to exploit the pandemic and monetize it in any way they can, so getting information about how that’s happening before it reaches you and your organization is vital and H-ISAC has done an excellent job at that this year.

From the Head of Information Security at a global clinical research company

A great deal of trust.. 

There is a great deal of trust between the members because we are all in this together. It is a race against the adversary, so we need to make sure we get our answers as quickly as possible with the highest level of quality possible.

From a CISO at a biopharmaceutical company

Friends on the battlefield… 

We share with each other like friends on the battlefield. My people are using the [H-ISAC] platforms and technologies to collect and I’m using the [H-ISAC] reports on what’s going on in the cybersecurity and threat space.

From a Director of IT Risk Management Security at a pharmaceutical manufacturer

From a member when asked about the value of their membership…

Absolutely love it, and I cannot imagine managing and protecting our technology resources without this resource.  The contributions from the intelligence community, in real-time, are extremely helpful in strengthening our security posture. 

Gary Diemert, Director of IT, Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics

We’re looking forward to sponsoring H-ISAC’s Spring Summit!… 

Just wanted to say that the (Fall Summit) show was excellent, and thank you so much for organizing it! Our team had a great time, really benefited from the quality of attendees and discussion. The Grand Rounds was the highest-praised part of the event.

From a sponsor

From a CISO who decided H-ISAC was worth joining…

It’s great to see what you have done with H-ISAC.

I think it’s time for us to re-open the discussion about ________ Health System becoming a member.

Why H-ISAC’s Daily Update is of high value…

The monthly newsletter is relevant as are the daily updates.  I turned off my Infragard subscription as yours is more timely and contains better content.

Robert Winter, Director, Information Security at Boulder Community Health
