The health care sector faces a barrage of cybersecurity threats – and community health centers are no exception. Security breaches, fines, and audits create a complexity of challenges for health centers to navigate. This session features a health center and Health Center-Controlled Network (HCCN) perspective on how cybersecurity threats impact the bottom line. Speakers will highlight the importance of budgeting to accurately reflect the costs of protecting their patients' protected health information (PHI) and to prevent and mitigate against cyber threats. Strategies will also be provided for demonstrating a positive return on investment (ROI) for health centers that adequately protect against cybersecurity threats.
