To coordinate and collaborate when threats arise for Australian Health Organizations


Orlando, FL – Wednesday, March 20, 2024 –

Denise Anderson, President and CEO of the Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Health-ISAC), and Helaine Leggat, Non-Executive Director, Critical Infrastructure Information Sharing & Analysis Centre Australia (CI-ISAC Australia), signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Health-ISAC APAC Summit in Cape Schanck, Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday, March 20th.

“As we all know, cyber threats are not limited to international borders,” says Health-ISAC President & CEO, Denise Anderson. “It is crucial for us to unite and stay vigilant against these risks. By bringing the global perspective of Health-ISAC and the Australian perspective from CI-ISAC together through this partnership, we can create a safer community.”

CI-ISAC is a not-for-profit entity ‘owned’ by its members and provides a value-for-money and commercially safe environment for companies to share insights for the purpose of building a stronger, collective response to cyber-attacks.  CI-ISAC co-exists with existing Government CTI sharing programs and helps expand the reach of CTI sharing into small and large entities and provides an industry-for-industry solution to CTI sharing.

CI-ISAC Australia CEO David Sandell notes, “This partnership will deliver outcomes both locally and globally as we collaborate to uplift the collective defences of our members against cyber threats.”

The agreement outlined the collaboration between these two organizations to develop cybersecurity capabilities for Australian health organizations, share relevant information and learning opportunities, and coordinate initiatives that align with both organizations’ missions.
