Health-ISAC Threat Intelligence Center (TOC) Updates

H-ISAC / Microsoft Collaborative Patch Tuesday Podcast

Health-ISAC members have been privy to Patch Tuesday discussions for several months now. H-ISAC and Microsoft have partnered to deliver a new medium for Members to discuss notable vulnerabilities and their patches following monthly Patch Tuesday updates. The August episode will be the 6th broadcast and is typically released 3-4 days after the second Tuesday of the month, which is always Microsoft Patch Tuesday.

H-ISAC Patch Tuesday sessions are hosted by a cyber threat intelligence analyst at H-ISAC Threat Operations Center. Members are encouraged to send all relevant questions for Microsoft ahead of each Patch Tuesday cycle to be answered during the recorded session. H-ISAC conducts the podcast with international Microsoft Security Product Managers who contribute their technical knowledge of the patches.
