MEMBER REFERRALS ARE VALUABLE
The more health sector organizations that join the ISAC, the more resilient the entire sector becomes! Please send any referrals you have to the following email: Contact@h-isac.org.
THREAT OPERATIONS CENTER (TOC) UPDATE
Join the Health-ISAC Automated Indicator Sharing Challenge!
Health-ISAC encourages all members to take advantage of automated IOC (Indicator of Compromise) processing and share back to the community. To those who actively share—thank you!
If your organization is not sharing automatically with Health-ISAC, please consider creating an automated sharing process to provide your fellow Health-ISAC members with IOCs you discover in your own networks and help everyone improve the safety and security of the entire health sector.
Members tell us the IOCs from Health-ISAC are extremely valuable and among the best sources of actionable intelligence. The IOCs help block potential threats and provide security teams a rich source to hunt for suspicious activity.
Health-ISAC supports a variety of ways to share IOCs with the community. Please send an email to email@example.com to find out more or ask about setting it up at one of the TOC Open Office hours each Thursday from 2-3pm ET.
