H-ISAC TLP Green Hacking Healthcare - May 24, 2022

This week, Hacking Healthcare begins with a reminder that the Health-ISAC is looking to hear from members interested in participating in this year’s Hobby Exercise. Next, we breakdown the recent Department of Justice policy change that states they will no longer attempt to prosecute good-faith cybersecurity researchers. Finally, we wrap up with a quick breakdown of two government cyberattacks that have impacted healthcare services and discuss what warning it might serve to other smaller and less well-resourced countries.

In this edition:

  • Hobby Exercise 2022
  • Department of Justice Signals Policy Change on Cybersecurity Research
  • Greenland Health System Hit by Cyberattack and Costa Rica Is at “War” With Conti
