Many security leaders consider information sharing the key to keeping pace with an ever-changing and growing landscape of cyber threats, and this session shows why.
NH-ISAC is the nation’s official health care information sharing and analysis center, a trusted community of stakeholders that includes, among other groups, providers, payers, public health departments and medical device manufacturers. The members share timely information on threats, incidents, and vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies.
In this session, attendees will hear first-hand how NH-ISAC responded to WannaCry and Petya and how information sharing helped members respond to the the attacks.
