Stop the Cyber Bleeding Author Bob Chaput Tapped by Quinnipiac University to Deliver Educational Programs on Healthcare Enterprise Cyber Risk Management
As industry grapples with continuing onslaught of cyberattacks, leading institution turns to healthcare cybersecurity expert for insight
NASHVILLE, TN (May 23, 2022) – Clearwater is proud to announce that company Founder and Executive Chairman Bob Chaput, whose book Stop the Cyber Bleeding is becoming the go-to resource for healthcare organizations seeking to develop strong Enterprise Cyber Risk Management (ECRM) programs, will deliver three Online MS in Cybersecurity Badge Courses for Quinnipiac University.
Quinnipiac University’s School of Computing and Engineering will introduce the new cybersecurity courses to educate students on how to manage compliance and cyber risk and combat cyber threats in healthcare settings. The three 1-credit online courses include Hands-on HIPAA Compliance Risk Management (CYB 610), Hands-on HIPAA Security Risk Analysis and Risk Management (CYB611), and Enterprise Cybersecurity Risk Management in Healthcare (CYB610). Lab assignments will include access to and use of Clearwater’s IRM|Pro®, the award-winning, cloud-based software platform used by hundreds of healthcare organizations to manage HIPAA compliance and cyber risk.
All courses will be taught by Chaput starting July 11, 2022, in the Quinnipiac Summer II session.
“Healthcare is one of the biggest segments of our economy and one of the nation’s 16 critical infrastructure sectors,” said Fred Scholl, associate teaching professor of cybersecurity at Quinnipiac. “It’s in our national interest to teach people the skills to protect it.
“Bob is a world-class figure in cyber risk management, and we are excited to provide the opportunity to learn from him as part of our curriculum,” Scholl added.
Quinnipiac partners with employers who wish to offer continuing education to their employees working in the cybersecurity area. Working professionals can earn badge certification after completing a series of one-to-three courses online. Students can apply these one-credit courses toward a future Master of Science in Cybersecurity if they choose.
