Healthcare Cyber in a Box, Cyber Insurance Toolkits: FREE Resources for Improving Cyber Readiness
The Indiana Executive Council on Cybersecurity (IECC) recently launched two, all-new, FREE-to-download toolkits, both of which are designed to provide organizations with more of the necessary cybersecurity resources for protecting themselves, as well as their critical systems and the people they serve throughout the Hoosier State.
Utilizing the expertise of healthcare cybersecurity and information security professionals, Healthcare Cyber in a Box is designed to provide organizations with three levels of expert guidance -- basic, intermediate, and mature -- involving 10 critical areas of cybersecurity -- as a FREE resource for creating more of the systems needed for keeping your operations secure while, at the same time, helping to protect your patients and preserving both their digital, as well as physical, well-being.
The Cyber Insurance Toolkit is intended to help businesses and organizations understand what cyber liability insurance is, what it covers and why it's become an increasingly important part of a company's risk management strategy. Drawing on the knowledge and expertise of insurance professionals and members of the legal profession, the Toolkit features a wealth of information from trusted sources -- everything from the types of questions to consider asking as part of an underwriting document to understanding how you can implement reasonable security controls (without spending a great deal of money) while, at the same time, exercising due diligence.

Act Now to Protect Against Increased Cyber Attacks
In light of the Russian military attack on Ukraine, the global threat of cybersecurity risks also are on the rise, both on the international and local level. The military action already has been accompanied by cyber attacks on the Ukrainian government and critical infrastructure organizations.
While there are no specific or credible cyber threats to the U.S. homeland at this time, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is warning organizations of the potential for Russia’s destabilizing actions to impact organizations both within and beyond the region, particularly in the wake of sanctions imposed by the United States and its Allies. Every organization -- large and small -- must be prepared to respond to disruptive cyber activity.
CISA's Shields Up site to provide the latest guidance and information to help organizations increase their resilience to cyberattacks and protect people and property. This robust catalog of free resources will be especially helpful today, as the cybersecurity threats facing the world have increased exponentially.
