Validating Your Cybersecurity Preparedness with 405d HICP

A discussion on cyber hygiene practices that help reduce risk and increase resilience at your hospital

In 2021, cybersecurity breaches hit an all-time high, with 679 breaches affecting 45 million individuals in the U.S., an 84% increase in the total number of breaches since 2018.  Distributed care, remote working, telehealth and information-sharing mandates continue to accelerate and are expanding the attack surface at a rapid pace.

To help reduce this increased risk, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)  established the 405(d) Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices (HICP) Guide, which aligns with the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and identifies ten practices that are tailored to small, medium, and large organizations.  The intent is to help today’s overtaxed  healthcare IT, Security, Privacy and Compliance teams to reduce their risk and increase resilience.  

Join David Ting, Founder  and CTO of Tausight,  Aaron Miri, SVP, Chief Digital & Information Officer, Baptist Health System and Will Long, Chief Security Officer, First Health Advisory for a 45 minutes session where we will:

  • Navigate the 405d HICP and approaches that will reduce your organization’s risk – while helping to lower cybersecurity insurance rates and potential fines, as well as simplifying auditing and reporting
  • Discuss basic steps that you can take to improve your organization’s cybersecurity resilience
  • Teach you ways to measure your organization’s performance against the 405d HICP

This will be an interactive session.  Questions are encouraged in advance. Please send them to jen.ryan@tausight.com, or enter them during the panel discussion on June 29th.
