Department of Homeland Security Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Meeting/Workshop
Boston, MA
Jun 09, 2015
America’s cyber adversaries move with speed and stealth. To keep pace, all types of organizations need to be able to share and respond to cyber risk in as close to real-time as possible. Organizations engaged in information sharing related to cybersecurity risks and incidents play an invaluable role in the collective cybersecurity of the United States. However, many companies have found it challenging to develop effective information sharing organizations—or Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs).

This meeting will have three workshop tracks, each consisting of a panel and two breakout sessions within the subjet area. The subject areas are forming ISAOs (models, opportunities/challenges), analysis (capabilities, data management) and automated information sharing (requirements, controls). 

This is a public meeting, and all information and/or conversations may be recorded to assure accuracy. The meeting notes and multimedia files developed in the workshop will be made public through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website in the days following the  meeting.

  • Everyone in the organization needs to see themselves as responsible for privacy and security of health information
  • Managers need to establish the importance of data privacy
  • Privacy and Security gaps need to be Identified and corrected regularly, and most importantly
  • Privacy needs to be a part of the daily operation of your organization
This presentation will discuss how both training and additional areas need to be integrated to create the culture of compliance that is your first and best defense for avoiding data breaches.

Healthcare records represent an extremely attractive target for cyber criminals, containing as they do various bits of sensitive information like Social Security numbers all in one place. With risks continuing to escalate, some organizations are taking a proactive approach, working to better protect patients’ data and fortify their systems before an attack or theft occurs.
