04/29/2022: Health Industry Publishes “Operational Continuity-Cyber Incident (OCCI)” Checklist

Today the Health Sector Coordinating Council’s (HSCC) Cybersecurity Working Group (CWG) published the “Operational Continuity-Cyber Incident (OCCI)” checklist. This toolkit is intended to provide a flexible template for operational staff and executive management of healthcare organizations to respond to and recover from an extended enterprise outage due to a serious cyber-attack.  Its suggested operational structures and tasks can be modified or refined according to an organization’s size, resources, complexity, and capabilities.  It represents the best collective thinking of health sector cybersecurity and emergency management executives contributing to the HSCC Incident Response/Business Continuity (IRBC) Task Group.  It is not associated in any way with any regulatory compliance program.
