The Healthcare Cybersecurity Challenge

The is a peer reviewed anthology. My chapter is intended to raise awarenss of the issues of cybersecurity in healthcare.

 

Abstract: 

Cybersecurity in health-care is the same as cybersecurity in other industries; except when it isn’t. All cybersecurity professionals can describe the technologies and methods that guard the quality of information technology services and protect sensitive data. However, a healthcare cybersecurity professional can also describe conditions unique to their industry which are necessary to understand threats and prioritize cybersecurity efforts. These unique conditions guide the decisions of healthcare leaders concerning investment of limited resources to minimize business risk, threats to organizational reputation, and to the safety of patients.

The healthcare industry faces rapidly evolving medical technology, new regulatory requirements, and operates in challenging economic conditions. Healthcare executives and cybersecurity professionals may gain perspectives and insights to help govern the healthcare cybersecurity programs from this paper. Armed with knowledge about security conditions, professionals can make investment decisions that balance healthcare business risks and patient safety needs. If executives fail to make careful and thoughtful decisions, the organization may experience financial damage or worse; a cyber-crime may result in the death of a patient.
