Located in The Hague, Netherlands, Fidel Velásquez began contributing to the TOC in February 2022. Fidel authored the first co-branded Health-ISAC/Auto-ISAC intelligence report, focused on Conti Ransomware threat actors. He supports Health-ISAC members in Europe, participates in regional events, and ensures US-based analysts are aware of emerging threats or vulnerabilities potentially impacting the sector.


Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst Dylan Hall joined Health-ISAC in June. Dylan received a master’s degree in Security and Intelligence Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. At Health-ISAC’s Threat Operations Center in Titusville, Florida, Dylan focuses on the accurate collection of network information and employs intelligence analysis to identify threats and  vulnerabilities in the healthcare sector.


Ethan Muntz joined Health-ISAC in June as a Strategic Threat Analyst to spearhead  strategic intelligence initiatives. Ethan’s Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University  degree focused on global security and intelligence studies. In Titusville, he will also   leverage his six years of Chinese culture and language studies toward expanding understanding of international political dynamics and threat actor motivations.






Health-ISAC is proud to participate in this Cyber Risk Management Pledge, launched by Coalition to Reduce Cyber Risk (@CR2) and announced at the RSA Conference.


Health-ISAC pledged to enhance cyber resiliency and counter
