Data security refers to a set of standards and technologies that protect data from intentional or accidental destruction, modification, or disclosure. For healthcare organizations, protecting patient data is extremely important, and the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated vulnerability to cyber attacks due to increased remote work environments and virtual care delivery models. CHCANYS provides presentations and content related to cyber security and emergency management. Use these resources to inform your center's security policies and plan for a range of incidents.
The Cybersecurity Incident Preparedness and Response Toolkit for Health Centers is a collection of templates developed by Online Business Systems for CHCANYS members to use and tailor to your health center to support data security and meet regulatory requirements. This toolkit includes basic templates and plans for incident response, business continuity, business impact, crisis communications, and security risk analysis. This toolkit is aimed to help you with your IT security policies, an important component of a comprehensive Emergency Management program.
