Now Hear This: Targeted Alerts Right to Your Desktop!
The TOC now has the ability to pass compromised credentials, exposed Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) linked to an IP address right to your door. In the case of exposed RDP, the TOC also passes along a screenshot and timestamp of the instance so that members can determine when the exposure occurred.
To make these targeted alerts as timely as possible, and allow you to act quickly to remediate, please ensure H-ISAC has an Intelligence POC and an up-to-date internal security distribution list for your organization. You can send the applicable information along with any questions to email@example.com.

The Health-ISAC Threat Intelligence Portal will be Upgraded on September 7. The 3.0 version boasts a new look and builds in several userrequested features. Members will have new messaging abilities, multi-question polling capabilities, more complex search filters, guided walkthrough and tutorial videos, and improvements to the Doc Library that include sharing documents with other member analysts, marking favorite documents for later use, and also storage of personal threat intelligence documents prior to analyst distribution. Look for more information coming soon. Get your questions answered on the HTIP upgrade—or any Health-ISAC product— by dropping by the “office” during a TOC Office Hour session on Thursdays 10-12pm EST.
CALL FOR PEER REVIEW
Health-ISAC members are asked to review the version 2.0 update to the Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices (HICP) publication. HHS is looking to form several ‘virtual focus groups’ to review the latest HICP draft and provide critical feedback. They are looking to break these focus groups into two sections: clinical and administrative staff, and IT and cyber staff. Learn more here: https://h-isac.org/health-industry-cybersecurity-practicespublication-peer-reviews-needed/.
