HHS Cybersecurity Task Force Offers New Free Resources

The HHS Cybersecurity Task Force released three new resources aimed at helping the health care sector improve its cybersecurity practices and responses.[1]

The three resources are intended to help health care entities respond to dramatically increasing cybersecurity threats. They were produced by the HHS 405(d) program—a collaborative effort between industry and the federal government—along with the Health Sector Coordinating Council Cybersecurity Working Group (HSCC CWG).

  • Knowledge on Demand is a new online educational platform that offers free cybersecurity training for health and public health organizations to improve cybersecurity awareness, the task force said. Topics include social engineering, ransomware, loss or theft of equipment or data, insider accidental or malicious data loss and attacks against network-connected medical devices.

    All available training sessions—including videos, job aids and PowerPoint presentations—can be accessed and launched directly from the 405(d) website, according to the task force.[2]
