Tightening Your Technology: Cybersecurity Strategies for Behavioral Health Providers

Sponsor National Council for Behavioral Health

While there are significant benefits for care delivery and organizational efficiency from the expanded use of networked technology, Internet-enabled medical devices and electronic databases for clinical, financial and administrative operations – networked technology and greater connectivity also increase exposure to possible cybersecurity threats. These threats require behavioral health providers to evaluate and manage new risks, including the proliferation of ransomware, in the context of protecting the security and privacy of patient data and most importantly, protecting patient care and patient safety.

Behavioral health providers can prepare and manage such risks by viewing cybersecurity not as a novel issue but rather by making it part of their existing governance, risk management and business continuity framework. They also will want to ensure that the approach they adopted remains flexible and resilient to address threats that are likely to be constantly evolving and multi-pronged. During this webinar, participants will hear from John Riggi, the American Hospital Association’s Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk, who will provide an overview of the key steps behavioral health providers need to take to begin building a robust cybersecurity platform.
