Mike Gallagher, R-Wisc., former co-chairs of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission, yesterday asked Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra for a briefing on the status of HHS efforts as the sector risk management agency to protect the health care and public health sector from cyber threats through stronger collaboration with the private sector.
