The Cybersecurity in Healthcare (Hospitals & Care Centres) MOOC was developed as part of the SecureHospitals.eu project, which received funding under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to raise the level of cybersecurity awareness and understanding in the sector, and also to promote the uptake of innovative cybersecurity medical solutions.
This free MOOC has been designed by the Erasmus University Rotterdam and it will help participants to gain an understanding of the role of digitalisation and cybersecurity in the healthcare context. In particular, students will have the chance to discover threats and opportunities that the healthcare sector faces due to digitalisation and the proliferation of (medical) data.
The MOOC is delivered entirely online and designed to be followed at your own pace. The main topics covered by the course are:
- Cybersecurity in healthcare: technology, data, and human behaviour
- Social aspects of cybersecurity: social engineering and social media
- Data breaches, hackers, and malware in healthcare
- Cyber hygiene: practices to improve cybersecurity
