Cybersecurity at Academic Health Centers
Cybersecurity is critically important in the healthcare landscape and is crucial to the tripartite mission of academic health centers.
Because cybersecurity plays a significant role across the spectrum of long-term strategic considerations, management, and day-to-day operations of academic health centers, AAHC and its members must be at the forefront of knowledge and practice in cybersecurity.
The AAHC President’s Council on Cybersecurity was formed in early 2019 as part of a new AAHC initiative that brings together members and thought leaders with expertise in cybersecurity challenges. The members of the Council met via various forums throughout 2019 and developed a set of resources, including Cybersecurity at Academic Health Centers: Key Considerations for CEOs and C-Suite Leaders.
