Supporting Cyber4Healthcare Global Cybersecurity Initiative
The CyberPeace Institute’s Cyber4Healthcare initiative is a program designed to offer free cybersecurity services to healthcare providers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Unisys Corporation is a proud supporter of the CyberPeace Institute’s Cyber4Healthcare initiative joining forces with many others around the globe in the private sector and academia to ensure that medical facilities are protected from cyber threats.
As part of its support for the program, Unisys will be providing pro bono online consultations designed to help healthcare organizations address the following critical areas of cyber defense including:
- How to minimize the effect of ransomware within an organization by leveraging proven strategies like Zero Trust and network architectures like micro-segmentation
- How to more safely extend cyber perimeters to include work-from-home (WFH) with better identity and encryption practices
- Providing a "spot check" of current cyber risks based on an individual organization's operational goals
Cyber4Healthcare further calls for a stop to cyberattacks on hospitals, healthcare and medical research facilities, and for attackers to be held accountable with international law to be applied where possible.
As a global security provider to critical infrastructure around the world, Unisys is committed to making cyberspace more secure. Unisys Chairman and CEO Peter Altabef has co-chaired the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee's (NSTAC) Cybersecurity Moonshot initiative, which calls for a "whole-of-nation approach" to create a safer, more resilient internet for government and critical infrastructure services. In October 2019, the Aspen Institute announced commitments from industry representatives, including Unisys, to address the mounting shortfall in the nation's cybersecurity workforce.
“Unisys is proud to stand with government, industry and academic leaders around the world to safeguard patient data, testing information and intellectual property so that our medical workers on the frontline can focus on delivering care to patients in their hour of need.”
- Tom Patterson, Unisys Chief Trust Officer
