HHS Awards Funding to Help Protect Health Sector Against Cyber Threats
ONC and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) awarded cooperative agreements totaling $350,000 to strengthen the ability of health care and public health sector partners to respond to cybersecurity threats. Through a streamlined cyber threat information sharing process, ONC and ASPR will be able to send cyber threat information to a single entity, which then will share that information widely. This approach helps make sure that smaller health care providers have the information they need to take appropriate action in the fight against cyber threats. See who was awarded the agreements.
