Become A Health Center Defender Against the Dark Web!

HITEQ Health Center Cybersecurity Defender Against the Dark Web

Health Centers are being inundated by an unprecedented surge in cybersecurity incidents that are having detrimental effects on healthcare worldwide. New, sophisticated threats seem to appear on a daily basis. Most importantly, these threats are primarily being targeted and spread through end users (vs health IT systems) through social engineering and phishing attack methods. 

Healthcare cybersecurity is the ultimate team sport. The responsibility goes beyond the IT staff and includes front and back office staff, doctors and nurses, patients, executives, and the board of directors. These resources are directed at all levels of the healthcare organization so that they may be proactive and aware and help to defend Health Centers against the Dark Web.

Take some time to read through some of the articles on this page and then fill out the submission form on the right and you will be rewarded with a Health Center Defender Against the Dark Web badge! This is an official badge that is submitted by the HITEQ Center as a proof of completion to the blockchain. Your credentials can be added to profiles such as LinkedIn and verified through accreditation services such as Accredible and Open Badge.

Improving Health Center Cybersecurity: Risk Assessment, Breach Defense, Mitigation, and Response - Session 4 Cybersecurity Incident Response Planning for Health Centers

HITEQ Learning Collaborative Series

Jodie Albert 0 353

 

It's time 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 will address 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 will equip health centers and their staff to:  

 

  1. Describe resources, frameworks, and methods for strategic implementation of cybersecurity infrastructure and services
  2. Describe essential cybersecurity tools and services that can help decrease the risk of a data breach
  3. Use best practices in cybersecurity when implementing modern telehealth tools and RPM initiatives
  4. Adopt cybersecurity risk management paradigms and incident response planning templates.

 

This learning collaborative will provide participating health centers a series of four structured virtual learning sessions where they will engage with facilitators, subject matter experts and their colleagues in peer-to-peer learning and discussion.

This session sought to motivate and educate Health Center staff and leadership on current critical cybersecurity threats, concepts, and methods for the defense of health data. A panel of cybersecurity experts addressed questions on how to best protect the health center from both internal and external network leaks, through malware such as ransomware, and through physical means on-site.
