HIMSS Responds to National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP)

HIMSS strongly supports the basic principle in the NCIRP, that education and readiness are shared responsibilities to ensure greater public awareness against cyber-attacks.

With the goal of making sure the NCIRP remains relevant into the foreseeable future HIMSS offered comments in three categories:

  • The dimensions of potential cyber threats
  • Clarification on what a significant cyber incident is
  • The rise of artificial intelligence as a means for cybersecurity defense
