More recently certified technologists, who specialized in nuclear medicine, are expected to have greater exposures to radioisotopes than the general radiologic technologists in the U.S. Radiologic Technologist (USRT) cohort owing to performing such procedures with greater frequency. The proposed USNMT study would be a direct follow-on to the USRT Study to assess health risks associated with occupational exposure to these much higher-energy radiopharmaceuticals.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Matt Shabat, Director, Performance Management, Office of Cybersecurity and Communications at 703–235–5338 or by email at Matthew.Shabat@ hq.dhs.gov. Sfmt 4703 Background: Cybersecurity insurance is designed to mitigate losses from a variety of cyber incidents, including data breaches, business interruption, and network damage. A robust cybersecurity insurance market could help reduce the number of successful cyber attacks by: (1) Promoting the adoption of preventative measures in return for more coverage; and (2) encouraging the implementation of best practices by basing premiums on an insured’s level of self-protection. Many companies forego available policies; however, citing as rationales the perceived high cost of those policies, confusion about what they cover, and uncertainty that their organizations will suffer a cyber attack. In recent years, NPPD has engaged key stakeholders to address this emerging cyber risk area. Between October 2012 and April 2014, DHS NPPD conducted several workshops, which brought together a diverse group of private and public sector stakeholders—including insurers, risk managers, CISOs, critical infrastructure owners, and social scientists. Workshop participants examined the current state of the cybersecurity insurance market and how to best advance its capacity to incentivize better cyber risk management. During those workshops, participants expressed strong support for the creation of a trusted cyber incident data repository. As envisioned, the repository would store, aggregate, and E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1
