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.

Strategic Cybersecurity Breach Protection and Incident Response

Guidance and Resources for Health Centers

General cybersecurity guidance would suggest that Health IT breach should not be considered a matter of “if”, but rather a matter of “when”. How an organization prepares and responds to an episode of breach is just as important as defending itself from breach. Unfortunately, Health Centers are perceived as a domain with high potential for data breach, and consequently it is critical for Health Center leadership to embrace breach mitigation and incident response planning across their entire organization vs being a matter to be addressed by their Health IT team. Breach can occur through both internal and external network leaks, through malware such as ransomware and through physical means on site. This is Part 2 of the Health Center Defense Against the Dark Web presentation series. This presentation provides general knowledge about breach mitigation and planning strategies for incident response.

Learning objectives:

-          Increased understanding of key aspects of breach incidence, notification requirements, and response

-          Improved ability to document security incidences and plan for effective breach response situations

-          Identification of 1-3 specific resources from the HITEQ Center knowledgebase that can improve their ability to plan, mitigate, and respond to incidences of breach
