Information Security For Small Healthcare Businesses

Your healthcare business or practice has access to valuable digital information entrusted to you by healthcare consumers, suppliers and employees. The information and systems your business uses to access and store this information are critical to its ability to operate.

If criminals compromise your computer systems or steal important business information, your business may suffer significant financial loss, possible legal liability, reputational damage and your customers’ personal information may be misused for fraudulent purposes. Some cyber attacks may cause you to lose access to critical business systems or Internet bandwidth making it difficult to run your business.

The Information Security Guide for small healthcare businesses has been developed by the Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) and the Australian Government’s Stay Smart Online service.
