HHS Cybersecurity Program: Securely Teleworking in Healthcare TLP: White - March 26, 2020

Why are we holding this presentation? Three reasons:

  • There’s the obvious, immediate answer: The Coronavirus pandemic

o   Currently, increased vulnerability and increased threat –increased risk.

·         There’s a longer-term answer: This likely isn’t the last event like this

o   Continuity of operations (COOP) Plans for healthcare organizations should be in place, and include remote work provisions

·         There’s a more permanent answer: Telework has inherent benefits to a healthcare   
  organization and its employees

o   Telework has the potential, in some instances, to make a healthcare organization more efficient and more effective

o   Telework can also raise employee morale, not only improving the quality of life for the individual but, as the saying goes, a happy employee is a productive employee

o   It must be done so securely
