Third European Summit – A Huge Success!


Aligning with traditional Portuguese fishing culture, Casting the Security Net indeed served as a tool to gather the European healthcare security community. As Denise Anderson, Health-ISAC President and CEO described in the Summit’s opening dialogue, the word
“net” has several meanings: to create a barrier to keep threats out, to capture or trap
threats, to protect like a safety net, and to connect, as in networking. And networking abounded in Algarve! Attendees are still buzzing about how great the networking was and how the content was so relevant to their work.


One summit attendee commented that “the majority – if not all – of the presentations had meaningful content to me,” and rated as Excellent the “level and spirit of networking.”


A fishing net is an ideal image to hold going forward – protection, safety, capture,
abundance, gathered resources, and best outcomes. Inspired by the words of the
Summit’s CISO Panel, let’s “keep the spirit of collaboration alive” throughout the entire Health-ISAC community.

The European Council announced the NEW Securitas Award, named after the Roman Goddess Securitas.

Securitas is a protective Goddess who watches over not only individuals in need but also entire empires. The recipient of this award at the next European Summit will similarly have contributed to the protection of Health-ISAC’s European community. We encourage
members to share information, collaborate and strive to become our FIRST Securitas Award recipient in 2023!

Save the date for next year’s European Summit in Dubrovnik, Croatia!: October 17-19
