The White House this week unveiled its national cybersecurity strategy that marks a fundamental shift “in how the United States allocates roles, responsibilities, and resources in cyberspace.”
The report focuses on key pillars to defend critical infrastructure, disrupt and dismantle threat actors, improve security and resilience, and bolster international partnerships.
“Cybersecurity is essential to the basic functioning of our economy, the operation of our critical infrastructure, the strength of our democracy and democratic institutions, the privacy of our data and communications, and our national defense," the report notes.
Among the key takeaways:
Pennsylvania hospitals continue to focus on efforts to bolster their cybersecurity. For more information about health care cybersecurity, contact Jason Tomashunas, MS, CHEP, HAP manager, emergency management.
Additionally, John Riggi, the American Hospital Association's (AHA) senior advisor for cybersecurity and risk, is able to assist AHA members with expertise and resources about health care cybersecurity.
