Introducing the HIMSS Cybersecurity “Call to Action”

As the threat of cyber-attacks continues to grow for healthcare organizations, HIMSS’ Lee Kim, director, privacy and security, and Samantha Burch, senior director, congressional affairs co-authored a blog post introducing the newly Board of Directors approved HIMSS Cyber Security “Call to Action.” The Call to action to fortify the health sector from cyber-attacks identifies potential solutions for the most pressing cyber challenges impacting the health sector. HIMSS encourages all healthcare organizations to help spread the word about the HIMSS Cybersecurity Call to Action and take a proactive, holistic approach to cybersecurity for the benefit of not only the welfare of their organizations, but—most importantly—the patients whom they are entrusted to care for.
