The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) on Tuesday launched the HITRUST Cyber Threat Analysis Service (C-TAS), which it bills as a collaborative platform for cyber defense specific to the healthcare industry.
By combining intelligence analysis capability with broad industry collaboration, HITRUST officials hope a “community defense” model can be achieved.
The C-TAS represents a major step for the healthcare industry in proactively protecting vital electronic health data and the nation’s critical infrastructure against cyber crime, cyber espionage and cyber activism, say HITRUST officials. The service also seeks to shore up vulnerabilities for electronic health record systems (EHRs) and medical devices.
