ASPR and NACCHO seek participants for a new cybersecurity preparedness committee

from IAEM

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), in coordination with the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO), is conducting a project to learn more about the needs of public health and healthcare organizations related to cybersecurity preparedness. As part of this project, NACCHO and ASPR will be convening a committee of federal, state, and local representatives from public health, healthcare, information technology, homeland security, and other relevant fields to examine cybersecurity preparedness measures for public health and healthcare information technology systems and recovery and information needs for public health and healthcare organizations in the event that cyber threats compromise their organizational information technology systems. NACCHO hopes to use findings of the committee to generate a needs assessment and an analytical report to inform future national and federal cybersecurity efforts and to also produce resources that can help public health and healthcare organizations prepare for cyber threats. Meetings of this committee are expected to occur on a monthly basis via conference call starting in January 2018 and continuing until June 2018. NACCHO welcomes a range of local public health and healthcare perspectives, including those within rural communities and those within larger cities, and encourages persons who have done cybersecurity related planning to consider participating in this committee. If you are interested in hearing more about this committee or might be interested in participating, please contact Raymond Puerini by Dec. 22, 2018. more
