On Wednesday, May 18, 2022 Josh Corman gave testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) on the current state of cybersecurity in the healthcare sector and recommendations for the federal government to work with the healthcare sector to improve collaboration and support security.
He shared that “attacks on healthcare are increasing in volume, variety, and impact – with
consequences now include the loss of life. While directionally-correct steps have been
taken, we’re getting worse faster than we’re getting better.” Corman also shared insights from his time on the CISA COVID Task Force last year.
Senators from the committee were concerned about increased critical infrastructure attacks, the rise of ransomware and the ability to hack and manipulate medical devices and asked Corman to speak on these topics.
