IAMERS has joined on behalf of its members the Healthcare Sector Coordinating Council. The HSCC is a private-sector organized and managed council created to establish a process to coordinate improvements to the security of critical infrastructure. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is required to engage and consider the advice of the Sector Coordinating Councils. This Sector Council engages in planning, collaboration and decision making efforts for the purpose of strengthening the security and resiliency of the sector’s delivery of services and assets essential for the health of U.S. citizens. IAMERS is currently participating on two HSCC cybersecurity initiatives: HSCC’s Legacy Medical Device Task Force; and Model Contracts.
