ONC Releases Cyber Security Training Game

ONC Releases First Web-based Security Training Game

ONC’s Office of the Chief Privacy Officer (OCPO) has announced the release of its first Web-based security training module, CyberSecure: Your Medical Practice. The security training module, which was developed with the assistance of the Regional Extension Center Program’s Privacy and Security Community of Practice, uses a game format that requires users to respond to privacy and security challenges often faced in a typical small medical practice. Users choosing the right response earn points and see their virtual medical practices flourish. But users making the wrong security decisions can hurt their virtual practices.

The use of gamification by ONC is an innovative approach aimed at educating health care providers to make more informed decisions regarding privacy and security of health information. Check out the security training game.
