HHS Task Force Releases New Cybersecurity Programs

The group will focus on preventing cyberattacks in the health sector.

The Cybersecurity Task Force of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published three new tools to increase cybersecurity in the health and public health sectors; an education platform, a publication, and a data analysis report. 

Knowledge on Demand will offer free cybersecurity trainings for health organizations across the country. The 2023 edition of the Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices provides updated methods for defending health systems from cyber attacks. And the Hospital Cyber Resiliency Initiative Landscape Analysis offers data sets and a full review of hospitals’ current cybersecurity capabilities. 

“Cyberattacks are one of the biggest threats facing our health care system today, and the best defense is prevention,” said Deputy Secretary Andrea Palm. “These trainings will serve as an asset to any sized organization looking to train staff in basic cybersecurity awareness and are offered free of charge, ensuring that those hospitals and health care organizations most vulnerable to attack can take steps toward resilience.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Deputy Secretary Palm as she promotes cybersecurity in healthcare.
  • For Secretary Xavier Becerra to seek God’s direction as he heads the Health and Human Services department.
  • For healthcare officials and professionals as they seek to safeguard cyber systems.
