These entities heavily rely on digital technologies to store personal and medical information, perform medical procedures, and communicate with patients, which increases their attack surface, but often face challenges in finding the necessary resources to invest in cybersecurity.
The newly released cybersecurity healthcare toolkit is meant to help organizations at every level build their cybersecurity foundation and implement more advanced tools to improve their defenses.
The toolkit details cyber hygiene steps that both organizations and individuals should take, provides an overview of the threat landscape, documents cybersecurity best practices, and provides a cybersecurity framework implementation guide.
Furthermore, it provides organizations with risk assessment tools and information on recommended tools, such as vulnerability scanning services and CISA’s Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog.
The toolkit also recommends resources to help organizations strengthen their security stance, prevent ransomware attacks, access free cybersecurity services and tools, and implement incident response plans.
