HHS Partners with the Private Sector to Enhance Cybersecurity across Health Systems and Address Future Vulnerabilities

On March 8, HHS, through ASPR, released a cybersecurity implementation guide to help the public and private health care sectors prevent cybersecurity incidents. The Cybersecurity Framework Implementation Guide provides specific steps that health care organizations can take immediately to manage cyber risks to their information technology systems.

“Cyber incidents pose risks to patient data, intellectual property, scientific or laboratory research, medical manufacturing, and ultimately the ability of health care organizations to safely serve their patients,” said HHS Deputy Secretary Andrea Palm. “The release of this guide will help health care organizations become better equipped to assess and improve their cybersecurity.”
