Theme: Protect IT

The theme for week three is, PROTECT IT” with Your Health Information!

  • Is your personal health information protected, secured? 
  • Do you know what you or a family member’s rights are concerning the protection of health information and medical records?
  • Do you know which law(s) protect your health information?
  • Is your health information exposed on the dark web?

While other laws offer some protection of health information, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, otherwise known as HIPAA, is the law enacted to keep your information both private and secure.  Let’s discover answers to the above questions as well as more pertinent ones related to protecting and securing health information.

The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, and our goal is clear - keeping America safe.

Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace.

Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risk stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services.
