AOE22 Panel Description

Health IT Cybersecurity Training Needs

Health IT is a recent healthcare discipline, and health IT cybersecurity is in infancy. The severity of cybersecurity situations in healthcare, especially during COVID-19, has necessitated the initiation of training and credentialing in this area—both formal and informal. These developments have in turn triggered development of new academic and certification programs leading to college degrees and certification credentials in Health IT/Health IT Cybersecurity as a testimony of competency in the health IT cybersecurity discipline. 

Learning Objectives

  • Realize the need for heath IT cybersecurity trainings.
  • Locate resources for healthcare cybersecurity trainings.
  • Make the choice between formal or informal training.
  • Pursue appropriate health IT cybersecurity credentials.
