Cybersecurity guidance suggests that breach of healthcare information 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 seen as a domain with high potential for data breach and consequently it is critical for Health Center leadership to embrace breach mitigation across their entire organization vs being a matter to be addressed by their health IT team. This session will discuss breach mitigation, ways in which to operationalize cybersecurity in order to better mitigate risks, review risk management tools and methods for planning cybersecurity-based incident response.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe primary healthcare security risk assessment domains
  • Describe cybersecurity risk management frameworks and incident response planning tools
  • Identify 1-3 specific resources from the HITEQ Center knowledgebase that can improve an organization’s ability to manage health information security risks
