HCA538: Cybersecurity and Health Care Policy

3 Credit(s)
As large scale data breaches become increasingly ubiquitous in health care organizations, concern for health care information data security has moved from an information technology (IT) problem to a board level problem. Managers in health care enterprises must have the strategic level policies in place to deal with the current and emerging cybersecurity challenges. This course will be divided into two parts. Throughout the first half of the course, students will develop an in-depth understanding of major and continual health care policy reforms as it relates to digital health and cybersecurity, with a particular focus on how federal policy is driving health information technology innovation. The second half of the course will give students the skills necessary to develop strategic level policy documents and build end-user cybersecurity awareness in a health care organization to include, ‘BYOD’ policies, standards for medical devices, cloud usage policies, ‘SWOT’ analysis, among other risk management policies and procedures.
