  • Description:
    Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. Planning for a breach in or attack on an organization's cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important topic and challenge for healthcare organizations and hospitals that rely heavily on technology for disease prevention and emergency response as well as for support and improvement of patient care. This reliance on technology puts them at increased risk for opportunistic threat actors/adversaries (e.g., hackers) and targeted breaches or attacks.

    To assist stakeholders within the healthcare community, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR) developed this Healthcare Organization and Hospital Discussion Guide for Cybersecurity (hereafter referred to as Cybersecurity Discussion Guide) to support and enhance healthcare organizations and hospitals with addressing cybersecurity. Specifically, this document is intended for personnel whose job responsibilities include cybersecurity preparedness and response planning.

    This document was developed by ORISE in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Healthcare Preparedness Activity (HPA) through an interagency agreement with DOE. ORISE is managed by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) under DOE contract number DE-AC05-06OR23100.
