    Hello LHIT, happy Cybersecurity Awareness Month! To help spread awareness, I wanted to let you know about a program that NACCHO is part of, which is the Health Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) Cybersecurity Working Group (CWG).

    The HSCC working group's mission is to identify cyber and physical risks to the security and resiliency of the health sector, develop guidance for mitigating these risks, and work with the government to facilitate threat preparedness and incidence response. 

    NACCHO will be attending the HSCC working group All Hands meeting in Salt Lake City in December. This will be an opportunity for us to identify cybersecurity needs at the local health level.

    I've attached a copy of the HSCC primer for more information, but if there's anything I can do to help voice your needs for our federal partners, please let me know. Wishing you all a safe month, feel free to chime in on this discussion if you find more cybersecurity resources to share with the group.
