Book Description :

Information professionals have been paying more attention and putting a greater focus on privacy over cybersecurity. However, the number of both cybersecurity and privacy breach incidents are soaring, which indicates that cybersecurity risks are high and growing. Utilizing cybersecurity awareness training in organizations has been an effective tool to promote a cybersecurity-conscious culture, making individuals more cybersecurity-conscious as well. However, it is unknown if employees’ security behavior at work can be extended to their security behavior at home and personal life. On the one hand, information professionals need to inherit their role as data and information gatekeepers to safeguard data and information assets. On the other hand, information professionals can aid in enabling effective information access and dissemination of cybersecurity knowledge to make users conscious about the cybersecurity and privacy risks that are often hidden in the cyber universe. Cybersecurity for Information Professionals: Concepts and Applications introduces fundamental concepts in cybersecurity and addresses some of the challenges faced by information professionals, librarians, archivists, record managers, students, and professionals in related disciplines. This book is written especially for educators preparing courses in information security, cybersecurity, and the integration of privacy and cybersecurity. The chapters contained in this book present multiple and diverse perspectives from professionals in the field of cybersecurity. They cover such topics as: Information governance and cybersecurity User privacy and security online and the role of information professionals Cybersecurity and social media Healthcare regulations, threats, and their impact on cybersecurity A socio-technical perspective on mobile cybersecurity Cybersecurity in the software development life cycle Data security and privacy Above all, the book addresses the ongoing challenges of cybersecurity. In particular, it explains how information professionals can contribute to long-term workforce development by designing and leading cybersecurity awareness campaigns or cybersecurity hygiene programs to change people’s security behavior.

Book Description :

The rapid growth of software applications within healthcare organizations has made it essential to have defined methodologies and formal processes for the management of the entire Information Technology (IT) portfolio. Utilizing a portfolio management framework throughout an application’s lifecycle will provide the necessary structure to ensure that all new applications are properly evaluated, and, once implemented, remain relevant while continuing to meet organizational requirements. While an organization may have a few large "organization-wide" systems such as the Electronic Health Record (EHR), lab or radiology systems, they also have a large quantity of other clinical, administrative, and research systems. Some larger organizations now have hundreds of software applications to support and manage. The IT staff must be able to implement new requests while still maintaining the current application portfolio. Utilizing a standard repeatable process will help to manage these large portfolios of software applications. This book reviews the management of applications throughout their lifecycle, from initial request through disposition. Best practices dictate that every newly requested application undergoes analysis followed by an approval decision from the organization’s governance committee. The initial implementation project must include activities to prepare for ongoing support while ensuring the application is compliant with all security, privacy, and architecture requirements. An application spends years in operations and maintenance where changes occur regularly through configuration and release management, or additional projects. The cycle continues until disposition. Understanding when to dispose of an application is just as important as deciding when to implement a new one. A defined process for disposing of an application ensures all parts are properly removed or destroyed.
