Information Sharing & Analysis Organizations (ISACs)
Is your organization ready for a breach? Digital security threats are too diverse and dynamic for any organization to handle alone. Manage your risk and protect your patients by joining the Population Health ISAC (PH-ISAC) or the Community & Transportation ISAC (C&T-ISAC) to reduce the chances of a breach happening. If you ever have breach, these ISACs help with incident reporting and avoiding federal penalties/liabilities
