The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $350,000 under cooperative agreements to protect health care stakeholders from and help them respond to cybersecurity threats.
Two cooperative agreements were awarded to the National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (NH-ISAC):
- one from HHS’ Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology to educate health care sector stakeholders about cybersecurity; and
- one from HHS’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response to build an infrastructure for circulating cybersecurity information among health care partners.
Work completed under the agreements will streamline the process HHS uses to send information on cyber threats, while improving the capacity of NH-ISAC to collect information about cyber threats from its member entities.
