CHIME launches new center to help industry improve cybersecurity
In an effort to better equip healthcare organizations to combat cyber-attacks, the College of Healthcare Information Executives (CHIME) recently announced the creation of the CHIME Cybersecurity Center and Program Office. The center will lead efforts to improve information sharing, develop and spread best practices, and encourage greater collaboration across the industry and with federal agencies.
“Cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and more dangerous every day. Today the focus is ransomware, tomorrow it will be something else. As an industry, we need to pull together and share what’s working so that we can effectively safeguard our systems and protect patients,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell Branzell.
