HITRUST announced today that over 750 healthcare organizations have signed-up to participate in the healthcare industry’s cyber attack simulation exercise, CyberRX 2.0, to begin in October 2014. This overwhelming response is the result of the success and important lessons learned from the inaugural CyberRX exercise held in April 2014. It demonstrates the commitment of the healthcare industry, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to proactively prepare for cyber events.

Information on the CyberRX 2.0 program and registration, as well as CyberRX 1.0 findings, are available on the CyberRX page, as well as the press release, which can be viewed here.
