Introducing PAAS Cybersecurity Training

In a world where threats lurk around every digital corner, safeguarding sensitive information has never been more crucial. Recent events, such as the Change Healthcare cyberattack, serve as stark reminders of the pressing need for robust cybersecurity measures. In pharmacies, where compliance with regulations like HIPAA are of great importance, the stakes are higher than ever.

PAAS National® is excited to announce the launching of a new training series to FWA/HIPAA Compliance Program members: PAAS Cybersecurity Training. This comprehensive training series, provided at no extra cost, represents a proactive step towards mitigating risks and fostering a culture of security awareness among pharmacy staff.

Comprising of five modules, each tailored to address specific cybersecurity challenges, PAAS’ training empowers employees with knowledge and best practices to hinder potential threats related to:

  1. Network Connected Medical Device Security
  2. Insider Data Loss
  3. Loss or Theft of Equipment and Data
  4. Ransomware
  5. Social Engineering

PAAS’ unique approach to training ensures its content resonates with all pharmacy staff. PAAS’ Cybersecurity Training will have the same look and feel that FWA/HIPAA compliance members are familiar with.

It’s important to recognize that cybersecurity is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. The dynamic nature of threats necessitates continual adaptation and vigilance, tailored to the unique circumstances of each organization. While our training equips participants with essential knowledge, it does not provide foolproof safeguards.

We encourage FWA/HIPAA Compliance members to complement this training by reviewing their HIPAA Security Risk Analysis regularly, ensuring it remains current and aligned with evolving natural, human and environmental threats.
