HHS Healthcare Industry Cybersecurity Task Force Report

The Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force, established by the Department of Health and Human Services in March 2016 per the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, Section 405(c), delivered its report to Congress with a number of recommendations to improve cybersecurity across the healthcare industry. The Act required the Task Force to research and develop a report summarizing the vulnerabilities in health care IT. The Report found that health care cybersecurity is in critical condition and outlines six recommendations to improve cybersecurity in the health care industry:

  1. Define and streamline leadership, governance, and expectations for health care industry cybersecurity.
  2. Increase the security and resilience of medical devices and health IT.
  3. Develop the health care workforce capacity necessary to prioritize and ensure cybersecurity awareness and technical capabilities.
  4. Increase health care industry readiness through improved cybersecurity awareness and education.
  5. Identify mechanisms to protect R&D efforts and intellectual property from attacks or exposure.
  6. Improve information sharing of industry threats, risks, and mitigations.

The report compiled by 21 cybersecurity experts -contains over 100 recommendations in response to these imperatives that will bolster cybersecurity in the healthcare industry. Included in those recommendations is a call for a healthcare-specific cybersecurity framework. The report also called for the HHS Secretary to name and resource a cybersecurity leader for sector engagement, who would work with federal, state and industry partners.
