It's Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

We at HIROC know cybersecurity is top of mind across the healthcare sector, and we’re here to help!

Just last month we published our latest cyber-related resource focusing on how healthcare staff can spot phishing emails, which is one of the most common ways hackers infiltrate organizations.

Here are five of our top cyber resources to download and share across your organization:

1. Guide: Hosting a Successful Cyber Breach Tabletop Exercise

Tabletop exercises are a cost-effective way of validating emergency response plans and ensuring staff are properly trained on current procedures. With this resource, you will learn the key elements of a tabletop exercise, access templates for creating your own, and find out how HIROC can help in your journey.

2. Planning for Cyber Security Incidents: A Crisis Communications Guide

An organization’s success in managing a crisis event is dependent, in part, upon its ability to communicate effectively. This guide will help teams develop a robust cyber crisis communications plan, complete with sample checklists, case studies, and advice on how to get major stakeholders involved in planning.
