HHS Finally Offers Cybersecurity Guidance to Healthcare Organizations

I’ve worked with healthcare organizations of all sizes for many years and questions are regularly asked about what the best controls framework is for building a cybersecurity program. Surprisingly, very little guidance related to cybersecurity has been provided by the government in the past years even though healthcare has been one of the prime targets of hackers. Stories of hacking, phishing, and malware/ransomware have been prevalent on almost a weekly basis. With the majority of healthcare organizations being understaffed and underfunded, efforts to develop a cybersecurity program have typically been done in a piecemeal fashion to meet the barebone requirements.
