HEALTH-ISAC Hybrid Spring Summit

A must-attend for healthcare security professionals

Secured in Paradise”  May 18-20, 2021


Health-ISAC Summits build networking and trust between our members. For this reason, last fall Health-ISAC decided to put in the hard work to create an engaging physical event with a virtual platform that reflects what is happening on site to the virtual attendees. Our unique Hybrid format brings a complete summit experience to members attending virtually with a continuous feed of stories, interviews and live stream events.


Health-ISAC  is excited to have cybersecurity expert  and 2014 InfoSec European Hall of Famer, Dr. Eric B. Cole to keynote for Spring. He served as a member of the Commission   on Cyber Security for the 44th President.


This video goes behind the scenes at a Health-ISAC hybrid summit to see all that goes on to create a successful hybrid event. Take a peek.

Call for Papers closes Friday, March 5th

A Health-ISAC Guide for Healthcare CISOs

This paper represents the third release in an H-ISACseries designed to introduce CISOs to an identity-centric approach to cybersecurity. By providing an explanation of key concepts, outlining a framework and best practices, investigating the various solutions, and highlighting aspects of an effective implementation, H-ISAC intends to provide a holistic guide to assist CISOs in the health sector on how best to approach Identity and Access Management (IAM) and its role in managing cybersecurity risk.

H-ISAC is excited about recent and upcoming implementations of new tools to improve the effectiveness of engagement between Health-ISAC and our members.

The first phase of these implementations was Cyware, H-ISAC’s new Threat Intelligence Portal. The Portal will encourage far greater participation, collaboration, and information sharing among Health-ISAC members globally.

More improvements are under way, and we have dubbed these changes Operation HEALTH.

Beginning March 1st, Health-ISAC has migrated to a new automated threat indicator sharing platform – Health-ISAC Indicator Threat Sharing, (HITS) powered by Cyware. More information is coming soon by Member email.


Operation HEALTH:

Health-ISAC Partners with Mastercard

for Global Health Sector Resilience


Through a new partnership with Health-ISAC, Mastercard and its subsidiaries, RiskRecon and NuData, will expand Health-ISAC’s mission to increase health sector resiliency across the globe.

The primary focus of this alliance is to reach the global provider community and pharmaceutical manufacturers, which have been targeted during the pandemic to make them aware of Health-ISAC’s sharing community and services.

“Partnering with Mastercard will allow Health-ISAC to reach an extended  global audience with our mission to facilitate information sharing and increase health sector resilience,” says Denise Anderson, President and CEO Health-ISAC.

Mastercard has long been an avid supporter of the healthcare sector and provides cybersecurity services to the healthcare community. Quantifying risk associated with supply chains and the vulnerabilities associated with big data speak to the special needs in healthcare due to the complexity of digital interoperability, patient identity, security and privacy.
