SITUATIONAL & CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH RESEARCHERS
2020 INNOVATIONS IN CYBERSECURITY EDUCATION PRACTICE WINNER
As Mobile Health (mHealth), Electronic Health (eHealth), Telehealth, and Digital Health are ever-growing in use, so are the cybersecurity risks within these platforms. This publication explores a fantastic toolbox and concept that global public health researchers can utilize to help them implement technologies with greater Cyber knowledge.
Over the past decade, many public health research efforts have been including information technologies such as Mobile Health (mHealth), Electronic Health (eHealth), Telehealth, and Digital Health to assist with unmet global development health and problem needs. This innovation includes background on the documented lack of Cybersecurity risk or vulnerability assessments taking place in global public health research, areas where greater assessments are taking place and existing frameworks and policies could be adopted. In addition, a proposed research paper section could be utilized to help minimize Cybersecurity and information security risk.
This innovation brings about critical Cybersecurity awareness to those individuals involved in public health research efforts that include a technology component via mHealth/eHealth and Digital Health. This innovation was initially introduced in a research publication earlier in 2019 and recently further developed at Kean University via a research publication (more on both here). This innovation also introduces a toolbox that global public health researchers can utilize to help them implement technologies with greater Cyber knowledge.
