Improving Health Center Cybersecurity: Risk Assessment, Breach Defense, Mitigation, and Response - Session 4 Cybersecurity Incident Response Planning for Health Centers
HITEQ Learning Collaborative Series
This session invited you to reconsider your strategy if you still treat cyber risk as an annual project or initiative. Having a thorough ongoing program in place means that even in the worst-case scenario, you'll be ready to demonstrate that you did what was reasonable and appropriate to protect your systems and patient data. Nothing can guarantee that a cyberattack won't become a breach. Health Centers are a domain with a high potential for data breaches. As a result, it is crucial for health center leadership to adopt breach prevention strategies across their entire organization, as opposed to relegating it to the IT department. This learning collaborative addressed health center breach mitigation tactics, operationalizing cybersecurity to better mitigate risks, telehealth risk management strategies, and incident response planning from a cybersecurity perspective.
This series equips health centers and their staff to:
- Describe resources, frameworks, and methods for strategic implementation of cybersecurity infrastructure and services
- Describe essential cybersecurity tools and services that can help decrease the risk of a data breach
- Use best practices in cybersecurity when implementing modern telehealth tools and RPM initiatives
- Adopt cybersecurity risk management paradigms and incident response planning templates.
This learning collaborative provided participating health centers a series of four structured virtual learning sessions where they engaged with facilitators, subject matter experts and their colleagues in peer-to-peer learning and discussion.
