National Healthcare Workshop
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsored a National Healthcare Workshop in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) to encourage the automation of cyber related information to protect against cyber threats and coordinate response within the healthcare sector. This workshop is part of a DHS Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS) effort to gain a focused understanding of the issues and challenges within and between the critical infrastructure sectors.
The goal of this workshop was to help DHS understand the organization’s current workflow, how AIS capabilities and information could be incorporated, and increase the probability that shared information would be utilized. Other benefits include the identification of capabilities leading to new avenues of automation with broader information and course-of-action sharing.
