NH-ISAC Partnership with Anomali Helps Accelerate Threat Detection and Information Sharing in Healthcare

Anomali has partnered with the National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (NH-ISAC) and will be providing threat intelligence to healthcare organizations through NH-ISAC. Anomali will be providing NH-ISAC with the required tools and infrastructure to allow its members to collaborate and share threat intelligence with other members.

Anomali will be providing up to date threat intelligence on new and current external threats specific to the healthcare industry allowing NH-ISAC members to take proactive steps to minimize risk. Anomali’s early warning system helps healthcare organizations respond to threats quickly when suspicious activity is detected on a network.

NH-ISAC members include hospitals, health insurers, medical research institutions, pharma companies, ambulatory providers, medical device manufacturers and other healthcare stakeholders. NH-ISAC community members help each other use physical and cyber threat intelligence to inform security decisions and mitigate threats.

The new collaboration between NH-ISAC and Anomali will help empower the healthcare community to identify and respond to cyber threats. Anomali provides actionable threat intelligence that can be consumed by healthcare organizations and used to compliment internal security threat monitoring programs

The Anomali platform automates collection, normalization, and integration of threat intelligence from a wide range of different sources. The platform allows seamless collaboration with peers in other organizations through Anomali Trusted Circles and gives healthcare organizations complete visibility into attacks that threaten the confidentiality of protected health information and the security of the networks on which the information is stored. A threat detection by one member helps other organizations take preventative steps to block attacks before they occur.

“Sharing threat intelligence among member firms is one of the most essential services of any ISAC. The NH-ISAC Board is pleased with the opportunity to work with the Threatstream platform to enhance threat intelligence sharing for the healthcare sector,” said Jim Routh, NH-ISAC board member.
