Public Health (HPH) Response to COVID-19
Critical Infrastructure Stakeholders and Partners,
Today, CISA releases CISA Insights: Cybersecurity Perspectives
Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) Response
provides an overview of vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the
HPH sector and best practices to counter this cybersecurity risk.
CISA conducted an analysis of vulnerability scanning data derived from
HPH entities enrolled in this service from March to November 2020. This
new resource provides observations and findings of vulnerabilities with
the HPH entities internet-facing systems and network configurations.
One common method used by malicious cyber actors is exploiting known
vulnerabilities or network configuration gaps to disable or disrupt
government and business networks. CISA strongly encourages
organizations, specifically HPH entities, to review this new resource
and take appropriate actions that could help reduce vulnerabilities with
internet-facing systems and network configurations. Also, CISA
encourages organizations to adopt vulnerability scanning service.
CISA offers free vulnerability scanning service to federal, state,
local, tribal and territorial governments, as well as public and private
sector critical infrastructure organizations.Organizations that
participate in this service receive weekly reports that identify and
provide trends for their active critical, high, medium and low
vulnerabilities. This service can help executive and IT professional
leadership make data-driven decision to prioritize resources. For more
