HCA530: Cybersecurity and Resiliency in Health Care Administration

3 Credit(s)
The regular occurrence of cybersecurity incidents has led healthcare organizations to treat cybersecurity as a risk that needs to be actively managed, rather than just an issue that technology alone can solve. From medical data tracking, to electronic health records, and bedside life support systems, information communication technology has streamlined healthcare delivery. Moreover, this is only the beginning-more and more healthcare related devices are connecting to the Internet to increase efficiency and deliver better patient care. However, the latest apps, mobile operating systems, and medical devices also create many privacy and security challenges. This course provides students an introduction to cybersecurity and resiliency in health care administration. Drawing on recent cybersecurity incidents in healthcare, students are introduced to cybersecurity threats, threat actors, cybersecurity risk management best practices, laws and regulations applicable to electronic health records, and basic techniques to build enterprise-wide cybersecurity awareness.
