About the Course


Published March 21, 2019


The Cybersecurity Act of 2015 (CSA) (Public Law 114-113) establishes a trusted platform and tighter partnership between the United States (U.S.) government and the private sector, recognizing that our critical infrastructure, economic solvency, and personal safety has become intertwined with our digital technologies. Section 405 (d) of CSA also calls for “Aligning Health Care Industry Security Approaches.” It is with this imperative that industry and government came together under the auspice of the 405(d) Task Group, starting in May 2017. The Task Group focused on building a set of voluntary, consensus-based principles and best practices to ensure cybersecurity in the Health Sector.This group is comprised of HHS, DHS, FDA, NIST, Healthcare Industry Cybersecurity Task Force, healthcare providers, medical device manufacturers, private corporations and cybersecurity experts. All efforts are coordinated by the Health and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council’s Joint Cybersecurity Workgroup (HPH-SCC-JCSW). This group, under the direction of HHS, has assessed our healthcare industry’s most impactful cybersecurity threat vectors, our areas of vulnerability, prioritized impact and created a shortlist of the mitigation strategies for a broad range of organizations within the industry. This document is currently in draft format and cannot be released to the general public. We are currently conducting focus group reviews and it is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2019. This presentation will review the targeted voluntary recommendations produced by our Joint Cybersecurity Workgroup. Introduce Framework terms to start educating the health sector professionals on important and generally-accepted cybersecurity terms. The attendees will leave with an understanding of our industry’s primary cybersecurity risks and the ability to tailor those recommended best practice mitigation strategies to their own unique organization. We will answer the question, “ How can I adopt cybersecurity best practices into my organization?”
