The health care field presents a number of challenges to effective cyber protection and defense.  Managing the competing interests of sharing information quickly to improve patient safety against the need to keep that same information secure from unauthorized disclosure, often in a resource scarce environment, means that numerous vulnerabilities exist that can be exploited by a range of malicious actors.

This webinar will discuss the threats, vulnerabilities and obstacles that the health care field faces in keeping its data secure.

OHSP helps to direct prevention, detection, protection, response, and recovery planning, not only at the state level, but also at the regional and national levels with our varied partners.  In addition to coordinating their efforts with other state agencies, OHSP plays a critical role in helping to shape state and inter-state homeland security policy and practices.  OHSP is led by Director Chris Rodriguez and comprised of three Divisions: the Division of Intelligence, the Division of Policy and Planning, and the Division of Administration with ten bureaus within the Divisions.


The New Jersey Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) is the State’s one-stop-shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting. Located at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center, the NJCCIC brings together analysts and engineers from the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, the State Police, and the Office of Information Technology to promote statewide awareness of local cyber threats and widespread adoption of cybersecurity best practices. The NJCCIC engages in close partnership with federal homeland security and law enforcement authorities, as well as sector-specific information sharing and analysis centers.
