Healthcare Industry Cybersecurity Task Force announced
The Department of Health and Human Services today announced the members of the Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force. Task Force members represent a wide variety of organizations within the health care and public health sector, including hospitals, insurers, patient advocates, security researchers, pharmacy and pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, health information technology developers and vendors, and laboratories. Many of the members are Chief Information Security Officers or equivalent positions within their organizations, while others have expertise in clinical medicine, software development, information security, and related fields.
The Task Force will hold four in-person meetings over the course of the year. These meetings will be open to the public on a space-available basis. In between in-person meetings the Task Force will meet by teleconference. As these teleconferences will be focused primarily on administrative matters and document preparation, they are not expected to be open to the public.
