The Cybersecurity Task Force of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) just released a report that suggests current guidelines are not adequate to meet the current cyber security threat. The report calls for U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to create a “Cybersecurity Leader Role” to help “align” efforts across the nation’s healthcare sector.

Among the many recommendations in the recently released report: the eventuality that healthcare organizations will be audited to make sure that they are observing government-approved and certified cybersecurity practices. RACmonitor investigative reporter and New York attorney Edward Roche will report on this latest development in the next edition of Monitor Mondays.

The broadcast rundown also includes:

  • Monday Rounds: Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of R1 Physician Advisory Services, will be making his Monday Rounds with another installment of his popular segment.
