Cybersecurity for Long Term Care

Long-term care facilities have repeatedly been the target of malicious ransomware attacks as well as programs that lurk in EHR systems, skimming patient information sometimes for years without going detected. Stay up-to-date on the newest methods of malware and check out the resources below to begin building your own cybersecurity policies.

     Established in September 2006, with the help of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and with funding through the Federal Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP), the California Association of Health Facilities' Disaster Preparedness Program (CAHF-DPP) supports the integration of Long-Term Care (LTC) into disaster planning and response efforts throughout the state of California. 


     CAHF's Disaster Preparedness Program is designed to take an all hazards approach and has several aspects: education, facilitation of planning efforts, development of resources and tools, and state-level advocacy for long-term care.
