Cyber strategy and Governance

What is Cyber strategy and Governance ?

Defining and administering cybersecurity controls in your organisation
  • Cyber Strategy and governance takes care of the identification of accountable members of an organisation, and defines their responsibilities for the mitigation of cyber threats an organisation is faced with.
  • This process helps in defining and directing the controls pertaining to cybersecurity in an organisation. The governance part of it concerns itself with identifying an accountability framework together with the inculcation of adequate checks and balances to ensure the proper mitigation of risks.
  • With the sharing of an unsurmountable amount of data and the sheer dependency on networked technologies, a strategic approach to cybersecurity is more important than ever.
  • This particular dimension concentrates more on the legal aspects than technological thus highlighting the pressing need of having a CISO alongside other members of the C-suite in every organisation, for the latter to understand the legal implications that may arise out of the cyber risks, and most importantly, how to mitigate them.

Application

  • The security rules are applicable on “covered entities” which includes health plans, pharmacy, radiology and electronic health records (EHR) labs, health care clearinghouses, laboratories and to any health care provider.

Requirements

  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all e-PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit.
  • Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information.
  • Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures.
  • Ensure compliance by their workforce.
  • Risk Management of e-PHI
  • Administrative safeguards: security management process, Information access management, workforce training and management, and workstation and device security.
  • Technical safeguards: Access control, integrity controls, and transmission security etc.

Non-compliance
