Taking Your Cyber Preparedness to the Next Level
HITRUST and Trend Micro have launched the second phase of the enhanced HITRUST Cyber Threat Management and Response Center by collaborating to offer HITRUST Cyber Threat XChange (CTX) Deceptive. CTX Deceptive is a deception-based threat detection collaboration platform that deploys decoys that work together to deceive attackers and gain knowledge of their methods, processes, tactics and targets of interest.
These decoys, or honeypots, are computer systems designed to attract and monitor attackers and are typically deployed as stand-alone systems within individual organizations. HITRUST has taken the concept to the next level by designing a deception environment that spans across many healthcare organizations via the HITRUST CTX threat sharing infrastructure. HITRUST has deployed decoys of commonly-used systems including leading EHRs, medical devices and other healthcare-specific systems. HITRUST facilitates the 24/7 monitoring of the activity and will not publicly disclose any information about the participating organizations or the target systems that decoys have been developed or will be in the future.
Similar to other HITRUST CTX programs, HITRUST CTX Deceptive is based on an organization’s cyber maturity level and subsequent ability to defend against the increasing volume and sophistication of cyber threats. HITRUST CTX Deceptive is built on the existing HITRUST CTX Enhanced Program.
