MEDICAL DEVICE AND HEALTH IT JOINT SECURITY PLAN

January 30, 2019

MEDICAL DEVICE AND HEALTH IT JOINT SECURITY PLAN

The Healthcare and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) is a coalition of private sector, critical healthcare infrastructure entities organized under Presidential Policy Directive and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan to partner with government in the identification and mitigation of strategic threats and vulnerabilities facing the sector’s ability to deliver services and assets to the public. The HSCC Joint Cybersecurity Working Group (JCWG) is a standing working group of the HSCC, composed of more than 200 industry and government organizations working together to develop strategies to address emerging and ongoing cybersecurity challenges to the health sector. This Medical Device and Health IT Joint Security Plan is the product of a task group established under the auspices of the HSCC JCWG and composed of medical technology, health IT and health delivery organizations, as well as the FDA, to address a major recommendation of the Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force report from June 2017 calling for a cross-sector strategy to strengthen cybersecurity in medical devices.
