Health-ISAC Exercise Series: Up and Running!

On June 22, the first group of H-ISAC members worked through each step of their collaborative response to a ransomware attack scenario. Thank you to Gate 15 for help in developing and delivering this timely event.

Ōrdr is generously sponsoring this exercise series and presented Securing the Smart Hospital of
Tomorrow, Today 
as part of the exercise.

The next exercise in the series will be on Thursday, July 22, 2021. Members can register to participate and get more information here.

 

The Fall Summit is planned to be an in-person event.

Plan your trip now to meet face-to-face in sunny San Diego November 30—December 2.

Also, in response to great feedback from members who have not been able to attend our Summits in the past and participated this year virtually, content will continue to be accessible online for future
summits as well.

 

Let’s make this the best Summit yet!

Call for Content Committee Volunteers
Help us put together the agenda that YOU want to see. The time commitment is minimal. Committee members review submissions, select topics, evaluate the presentations for format and content value, and may assist with announcing sessions at the summit.

Call for Papers closes July 16th

HEALTH-ISAC SECTOR / WORKING GROUP UPDATES

 

Health Sector Cybersecurity: Letter to US President Biden

Similar to the borderless properties of a cyber breach, Health Sector security is a global issue and is in need of attention by global healthcare entities and their respective governing authorities.

The US Health Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) wrote a letter to President Joseph Biden in hopes of highlighting the urgent need to strengthen the cybersecurity of healthcare and public health data, medical technology and information technology systems. To view the letter, go to:

Health-ISAC Working Group: IS Risk Management — Get Involved!

Information security risk management is a critical capability to enabling action, focus, and risk reduction for any organization. While risk management principles and tactics are fairly “common”, our healthcare industry has an opportunity to collectively enhance our value and efforts by sharing best practices and challenges and learning together.

The group meets virtually on the 4th Thursday of each month at 2:00PM EDT. Email contact@h-isac.org to join the IS Risk Management WG and get involved with the conversations.
