HCA551: Hacking the Future of Health Care Administration

3 Credit(s)
With the emergence of more advanced health care related technologies and the required integration of “Internet of Things” devices into health care settings, health care enterprises are more frequently becoming the targets of advanced cyber threat actors bent on data destruction or obtaining intellectual property and patient personal identifiable information (PII). As the number and scope of attacks increase, health care administrators are pressured to better understand these threats and make technical decisions that have traditionally been outside the scope of their responsibility.  ”Hacking the Future of Health Care Administration” will introduce students to the cyber threats directly targeting and impacting health care enterprises currently and in the future.  Students will research and evaluate historical case studies of various compromises in health care settings and learn how best to address similar situations, while also proactively mitigating against future events.
