COVID-19 Related Cybersecurity Information

As the nation’s hospitals and health systems, physicians, caregivers and staff treat and care for patients and our communities, there are others in the world seeking to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic for financial gain. Particularly, cyber criminals. 

We here at the AHA are closely monitoring government cyber bulletins and threat information from the field. We believe a hospital and health system's cybersecurity program's first priority is to mitigate cyber risk affecting patient care and patient safety.
