Healthcare information has been protected according to regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) since 2003 but new attacks by malicious external actors (hackers) pose new threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Protected Health Information (PHI).  The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released Cybersecurity guidance to assist with preparations to avoid and respond to threats, and HHS has launched a new Healthcare Cybersecurity Communications Integration Center (HCCIC) to assist healthcare entities in the event of cyber-attacks. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand how to use Risk Analysis and the Information Security Management Process to address Cybersecurity issues.

2. Know how to prepare for Cybersecurity events that threaten the privacy and security of PHI.

3. Understand the importance of good user training to prevent and detect Cybersecurity events.
