Describe security and privacy concept principles as they relate to the healthcare industry. Learners will be able to understand the relationship of security and privacy, and how to manage and handle all information requiring data protection in the healthcare industry.
Identify how organizations manage information risk, and what security and privacy governance means for that information. Learners will be introduced to basic risk management methods and lifecycles, and the activities that support these concepts.

Identify concepts for managing third-party relationships. Learners will gain knowledge regarding concepts pertaining to their use of information, any additional security and privacy assurances, third-party assessments, third-party security and privacy events, and recognize the mitigation process of third-party risks.
