March 14, 2014

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) and Department of Health and Human Services will conduct free monthly briefings beginning in April to help hospitals and other health care organizations better understand current and probable cyber threats in the health care sector and share best practices for cyber threat defense and response. HITRUST also has established an alert system to notify health care organizations of high probability and impact cyber threats targeted at the health care sector. To receive the C3 Alerts or participate in the monthly online briefings, register at www.hitrustalliance.net/cyberupdates. Participating hospitals are encouraged to provide feedback directly to HITRUST about the effectiveness and format of the alerts and briefings.
