  • The Senate Intelligence Committee released a report examining ways the federal government can bolster security standards to thwart cybersecurity threats in the health care sector. The report recommends that the federal government improve the country’s cybersecurity risk posture in the health care sector, help the private sector mitigate cyber threats, and assist health care providers in responding and recovering from cyberattacks. The report also suggests that health care organizations establish a cyber disaster relief program to help them recover faster after a cyber incident and proposes to implement a federal reinsurance program to help insurance companies cover some of the costs related to cyberattacks.
