3 Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7) – National CIKR Protection National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) - After 9/11, 18 National Critical Infrastructures and Key Resources (CIKR) were identified for protection. Presidential Directive (HSPD-7) – Established national Policy to identify and prioritize US critical infrastructures and key resources – protecting from terrorist attacks. Recognizing that each infrastructure possessed its own unique characteristics and operating models, Sector- Specific Agencies (SSAs) were identified to develop sector CIKR protection plans. Information Sharing & Analysis Centers (ISACs) - Federal departments (US DHS, FBI, etc.) and SSAs collaborate in a public/private partnership with sector-specific ISACs to encourage sector-specific mechanisms to monitor, identify, prioritize, analyze and coordinate sector protection (physical and cyber). 1 – CIKR Protection

4 DHS Information Sharing Environment (ISE) CIKR Components Coordination & Governance / Risk Mitigation Relationship Management / Information Exchange Content Identification & Development INFORMATION SHARING & ANALYSIS CENTERS (ISACs) The definition of an ISAC is "a trusted, sector-specific entity which provides to its constituency a 24/7 Secure Operating Capability that establishes the sector’s specific information/intelligence requirements for incidents, threats and vulnerabilities (two-2ay information sharing). Based on its sector-focused subject-matter analytical expertise, the ISAC then collects, analyzes and disseminates alerts and incident reports to its membership and helps the government understand impacts for its sector.” ISAC Characteristics: Trusted Information Sharing & Analysis, Trusted Sector and Cross-Sector Relationships, Trusted Private Sector Subject Matter Experts, International Reach Protection Partnership / 2-Way Information Sharing - ISACs 1 – CIKR Protection

5 Coordinating Council Federal Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) Government Coordinating Council (GCC) Critical Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) Information Sharing & Analysis Center (ISAC) GCC/Government – Federal Depts. (DHS, etc.), Federal Agencies, State, City, County SCC/Private Sector - Industry, Owner/Operators, Trade Associations, Standards Organizations, Academia, etc. CIKR / SSA / Coordinating Council / ISAC – Collaborative Partnership For each National Critical Infrastructure, a Federal Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) has a Coordinating Council (Government/Private) working in a collaborative partnership with sector-specific Information Sharing & Analysis Centers (ISACs). Private Sector Critical Infrastructure & Key Resources (Owner/Operators, Industry, Academia, etc.) 1 – CIKR Protection

8 WHAT IS INFORMATION AND CYBER SECURITY? Prevents exploitation of information either in paper-based or electronic information systems Ensures confidentiality, integrity and availability of systems and data Includes restoring electronic information and communications systems in the event of a terrorists attack or natural disaster WHAT IS CYBER INFRASTRUCTURE? Physical assets and virtual systems and networks that enable key capabilities and services in both the public and private sectors IMPORTANCE OF CYBER INFRASTRUCTURE Information technology (IT) supports three (3) types of cyber infrastructures across the various CIKR sectors 1.Business Systems – Mission essential systems that are used to manage or support common business process and operations 2.Control Systems – Cyber systems used to monitor and control sensitive processes and physical functions (SCADA, HVAC, Environment Control Systems, Lab-Based Surveillance, Healthcare – Medical Devices, Monitors, Medical Equipment, etc. ) 3.Safety, Security, Support and Other Specialty Systems – Cyber systems used to manage physical access or for alerting and notification purposes (Computerized alarm systems, electronic card readers, biometrics, radio frequency, identification (RFID), emergency alert systems, HAZMAT systems, etc. Protection of physical and cyber assets and interoperability is problematic due to the interconnected and interdependent nature of the nation’s critical infrastructures – especially the nation’s Healthcare and Public Health Sector. Cybersecurity is much more than “User Names” and “Passwords” Business Management Holds Responsibility for Security (Both Physical/Cyber)……………Technology Enables It. 2 – Cybersecurity

9 CYBER THREAT ISSUES / TRENDS Threats evolve quickly – as soon as one is identified and counter measures put in place, the threat can change or expand into new or multiple threats Hackers quickly acquire skills to launch attacks on US cyber infrastructures. Emergence of “hacker schools” online and abroad Hackers are selling their services to a wide variety of actors (criminals, terrorists, criminal organizations, nation states, disgruntled employees, contractors, etc. Anonymity of the Internet – Allows “hacker for hire services” into a complex black market Hacking techniques previously required specialized coding and programming knowledge. NOT ANY MORE – Less skilled users can now access free and commercially available hacking automated programs and tools The number of malicious hackers with the necessary skills continues to increase while the knowledge required for counter measures has decreased Cyber Threats 2 – Cybersecurity CYBER THREAT Via an information system, any circumstance or event with the potential to adversely impact organizational operations, assets (both physical and informational), individuals, other organizations, other critical infrastructures or the Nation through an information system. Cyber threats can affect and immediately impact – hospital operations to admit/treat patients, security systems, environmental controls, insurance and medical billing claims technology, electronic records and personal data, supply delivery and stockpiles, functionality of life sustaining equipment, public health data and emergency management systems.

10 CYBER VULNERABILITIES Weaknesses in physical or information systems, system security procedures, internal controls, or implementation that could be exploited or triggered by a threat source. CYBER THREAT ISSUES / TRENDS Cyber vulnerabilities fall into three (3) categories: People (Employees or those external to the organization) Processes (Security Procedures) Technology (Software, Additional Programs, Shared Networks, Badging Systems, etc. IDENTIFYING VULNERABILITIES Both the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team, or the US-CERT, and the Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), help stakeholders across all sectors identify and address vulnerabilities Cyber Vulnerabilities 2 – Cybersecurity

11 Types of Cyber Attacks Physical Facilities (Unauthorized Access, Environment/Emergency/Hospital Systems Disruption) Denial of Service, Penetration Attacks, BotNET (Malicious Software Robots, Scareware ($$$ or Attack), Malicious Code, Unknown Program Installation, Database Attacks, Website Defacements, Multiple Coordinated Attacks, Wireless Network Exploits, Domain Name Server (DNS Attacks), Pirated Software/Intellectual Property, Unauthorized Access, etc. Types of Cyber Attacks Cyber Attack Categories Natural or Inadvertent Attack – Accidents from Natural Disasters Intentional Threats – Illegal or Criminal Acts (Insiders or Outsiders, Recreational/Criminal Hackers Human Blunders – Errors, Omissions, Unintentional Human Actions Hardware (Computers, Printers, Scanners, Servers, Communication Media) Software (Applications, Special Programs, System Backups, Diagnostic Programs, Operating Systems, etc. Data – In Storage (Rest), Transition (Transit) or Undergoing Modification (Change) Medical Devices – Hacking into medical devices and injecting malicious code to disrupt lifesaving devices. Smart Phone Attacks – Hacking personal information, s, documents, applications People – Users, Systems Administrators, Hardware and Software Manufacturers, Disgruntled Employees, Unauthorized Personnel Documentation – User Information for Hardware/Software, Administrative Procedures, Policy Documents Business and Personal Social Network Attacks – Stealing information about your behavior and lifestyle 2 – Cybersecurity

12 Cybersecurity – Protecting the Healthcare & Public Health (HPH) Sector The HPH Sector is not only a domestic critical infrastructure, but a foreign one as well (i.e. supply chain dependencies, etc.) The HPH Sector is diverse with no single impenetrable security system. Attacks can impact organizational integrity, loss of business and financial systems, loss of data, medical equipment and device corruption, loss of environmental systems, facility shutdown, etc. Attacks can result in lawsuits, criminal, or regulatory compliance actions and fines for not having protective cybersecurity policies, measures and technologies in place. Measures (defined and documented plans, procedures, protective solutions/collaborative partnership) must be taken and implemented to protect technologies, processes, computer networks, equipment, facilities, and the workforce from authorized access, threats, attacks or vulnerabilities. PROTECTING THE HPH SECTOR The HPH Sector utilizes numerous technologies to provide the delivery of care and to respond to emergencies and perform surveillance. Cybersecurity is increasingly becoming more critical due to attacks to healthcare and other critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR) sectors. 3 – Protecting the HPH Sector
