Previous attempts at integrating cybersecurity within the entire healthcare staff—particularly in hospitals—remains insufficient and inconsistent. To quickly react and proactively move to changing needed security standards and practices, healthcare security must go beyond simple policy enforcement.
Our proven concept revolves around a comprehensive experience and story-based training, consisting of both end user training, practice and marketing tools to communicate and create awareness. Most previous attempts at improving cybersecurity programs have been focused on the impact of data loss and addressing the importance of establishing user awareness, yet few programs actually integrate training applied to common user risks, with experiential-based learning. Bottom line: we learn better when we learn from our mistakes.
The significance of this research helps identifies if and how much peer influence promotes learning from current phishing, social engineering scams, and attempts to penetrate hospital networks. This learning approach also adapts to an ever-changing security climate to safeguard users from malicious attacks and promotes behavior change among very diverse staff demographics.
