There was a great deal of activity last week in the Senate as it considers the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (S.754) or “CISA.” The bill would help hospitals and health systems achieve timely and actionable situational awareness through robust cyber threat information sharing. Please consider reaching out to your Senators to urge their support for this important legislation: http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/o/51289/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=16231
As an important piece of the nation’s critical infrastructure, it is vital that healthcare organizations have the tools and information they need to identify and more effectively defend against the growing landscape of cyber threats. The ability to share threat information for the public good, without fear of making headlines or jeopardizing your institution’s reputation, is a must.
