Cybersecurity & CISSP®
Cybersecurity for Healthcare Professionals


In this course, managers are introduced to essential information security principles and concepts. These concepts are critically important in the healthcare sector as a data breach can have far-reaching consequences for individuals and organizations. Beyond financial losses and the embarrassment of having personal information exposed online, a security breach in healthcare can result in a patient becoming seriously injured or killed.

This course is designed to help managers navigate crucial cybersecurity concepts as applied to HITECH and HIPAA-covered entities. Learners will explore the reasons why breaches occur, the motivation of attackers, and how to protect Personal Health Information (PHI) while it is in use, in storage, and in transit across a network.
