The rapidly evolving healthcare industry faces increasing challenges with growing volumes of electronic health records, new government regulations, and a more complex IT security landscape – HCISPP®s provide the frontline defense in protecting this sensitive information.
The HealthCare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner (HCISPP) course is designed for individuals who elect to take this training course to hone their knowledge and skills related to HealthCare Security and Privacy and/or to prepare for the (ISC)² HCISPP exam. The program is comprised of a total of 6 domains. The modular format is designed to organize and chunk information in order to assist with learning retention as participants are guided through the HCISPP course materials.
HCISPP candidates must have a minimum of two years of cumulative paid full-time work experience in one domain of the credential with the exception that one year of the cumulative experience must be in any combination of the first three domains in Healthcare (Healthcare Industry, Regulatory Environment in Healthcare, and Privacy & Security in Healthcare). The remaining one year of experience can be optionally in any of the remaining three HCISPP domains (Information Governance and Risk Management, Information Risk Assessment, and Third Party Risk Management), and does not have to be related to the Healthcare Industry.
Healthcare Information Security and Privacy Practitioners (HCISPPs) are at the forefront of protecting patient health information. These are the practitioners whose foundational knowledge and experience unite healthcare information security and privacy best practices and techniques under one credential to protect organizations and sensitive patient data against emerging threats and breaches. HCISPPs are instrumental to a variety of job functions: Compliance Officer, Information Security Manager, Privacy Officer, Compliance Auditor, Risk Analyst, Medical Records Supervisor, IT Manager, Privacy & Security Consultants, and Health Information Manager.
