Healthcare in the Balance: A Consequence of Cybersecurity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The mandate for cybersecurity crosses disciplines. The deficit in the number of cybersecurity professionals required to fill current and future positions represents a growing challenge. Cybersecurity readiness presents significant ever-changing issues with possible long-term or perhaps life-threatening consequences. Cybersecurity experts who possess critical knowledge in another field such as healthcare where a combined or blended understanding of key information is integral to the industry are in short supply. In healthcare as is the case in a host of other sectors not only is it necessary that systems and data are protected, but the business must be compliant with existing law as well. It is imperative that action be taken to address the problem in order not to limit access to healthcare. The focus of this research is to study the serious shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the field of healthcare, the impact that this issue has on the availability of healthcare, and to suggest a solution that could provide immediate relief.
