DHS CISA Region 6 Healthcare Security Forum

Cyber threats can occur at any time and to any organization or business, regardless of their size or scope. While our Nation is facing this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, malicious actors and cybercriminal groups exploit known vulnerabilities and heightened public fear through phishing campaigns causing users to open documents and click links before properly investigating its legitimacy. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), as the federal government’s leader in cybersecurity and infrastructure security, offer several scanning and testing services that assist organizations with reducing their exposure to threats through a proactive approach by helping to locate vulnerable attack vectors.


Join this 1-hour presentation provided by CISA, Region VI to boost your understanding of physical and cyber threats to the healthcare industry and the tools, products, and resources CISA offers to help you mitigate them.



  • Understanding physical and cyber security concerns, policies, procedures and best practices
  • Information sharing on physical and cyber threats
  • Sharing of CISA physical and cyber services
  • Walk away with a clear plan to continually improve the physical and cybersecurity capability at your organization.

This session is ideal for physical and cyber security professionals of all experience levels, including risk managers, security operations/SOC staff, incident responders and compliance managers. It is also ideal for healthcare administrators responsible for allocating resources in support of physical and cyber security for their organization.


This forum will be repeated several times throughout July; however, you only need to attend 1 time. All approved registrants will receive a URL 24hrs before the event.
