Star-date Q2-2023, Chairman’s Log: Let us reflect on the fact that the HSCC Cybersecurity Working Group published fully 6 resources in the second quarter, and we are on track to have published over 5 years at least 27 cybersecurity best practices and recommendations for the health sector by the end of 2023. That is an extraordinary library of content that now must find its way to implementation across the sector by the stakeholders that need it most.
Indeed, the leadership of the HSCC Cybersecurity Working Group recognizes that there is no shortage of resources available to the sector, but moreso a shortage of awareness and intention across the majority of the industry. We are now contemplating new initiatives toward mobilization and action. With the help of our Outreach and Awareness Task Group we are turning our focus to driving adoption of those publications and measuring meaningful progress as an industry.
