Summary
The Biden administration is set to introduce minimum cybersecurity standards for hospitals following a significant data breach at Change Healthcare that exposed information on 100 million Americans. The new rules will apply to entities receiving Medicare and Medicaid funds, with a public comment period preceding their implementation. This initiative also includes free cybersecurity training for 1,400 small, rural hospitals. The healthcare sector remains a frequent target for cyberattacks, as exemplified by recent incidents involving UnitedHealth and Ascension. While some industry figures, like UnitedHealth's CEO, show openness to these regulations, the American Hospital Association argues against mandates, citing potential financial strains on hospitals.
