Warner Seeks to Advance Information Security in the Health Care Sector

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., sought stakeholder input on potential methods to boost cybersecurity in the health care industry with an emphasis on oversight gaps, cyber threat impacts and efforts to strategically address information security needs. Cyber criminals target the health care industry due to the sensitivity of medical information that contains social security numbers, addresses and health records, Warner's office said Wednesday.

The 2019 Wash100 award winner addressed stakeholders with a number of questions including those concerning cyber vulnerability detection, real-time system information and recommendations for increased health care cybersecurity.

“I would like to work with you and other industry stakeholders to develop a short and long term strategy for reducing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the health care sector,” Sen. Warner said.
