With the healthcare industry adopting new technologies rapidly, they are increasingly becoming susceptible to

engaging learning experience to the workforce.
Ransomware, along with phishing attacks and insider threats, led to some of the biggest breaches in the
healthcare sector. The course starts with an overview of healthcare data, expanding threat landscape along
with recent data breaches in the healthcare industry. Further, the course will help you to learn about the
importance of HIPAA, HITECH, security and privacy rules, protecting and handling PHI.
The learner will then proceed to understand healthcare provider responsibilities, security breaches, and how
