OIG Announces Multidisciplinary HHS Cybersecurity Team

The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) recently announced the creation of a multidisciplinary Cybersecurity Team, focused on protecting HHS data, systems, and beneficiaries from cybersecurity threats.

OIG formed the Team in response to OIG’s Top Management and Performance Challenges Facing HHS 2017 report, which included cybersecurity threats on the list. The report identified the key components of the challenge as “protecting HHS’s data and systems” and “fostering a culture of cybersecurity beyond HHS.”
