 I met a lot of great people and the table-top at the end
was solid. Looking forward to more of these events.”
Workshop attendee

The recent June 18 and 19 H-ISAC Security workshop in Buffalo, New York was a great event overall. The engaging content presented inspired many questions from participants following each presentation. The exercise on the second day was very interactive. Attendees told event staff how much they enjoyed and learned from it.

The BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York planning team members were excellent hosts and went above and beyond in helping make this a successful event.

‘Best Security Team’ award

at the 2019 SC Awards Europe 


June 4, 2019,London – The Best Security Team category had some stiff competition including Bank of England, Lloyds Banking Group, Burberry, Anglo American mining & the UK Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.

The award was based on a series of automation initiatives, including some which utilize H-ISAC threat intelligence feeds to proactively push IOC’s to security controls.

It is also a recognition that healthcare isn’t as behind financial services security as people often say, something that Brian Krebs mentioned in his keynote speech at the H-ISAC Fall Summit. Most of the other companies shortlisted were financial services.
