Healthcare cyber-attacks and their mitigation techniques in Industry 4.0 is the topic selected. Advanced threats and attacks have developed by cyber criminals unaware of healthcare professionals. I want to address the latest threats and mitigation strategies that help healthcare organizations and patients secure their information. Cybercriminals believe the healthcare industry is a soft target. Cybercriminals routinely target healthcare organizations. Healthcare industry vulnerabilities can be linked to various issues, including a lack of security awareness among care personnel, reliance on old unpatched systems that are no longer supported, a broad attack surface, and a lack of staffing resources. Qualitative and quantitative research methods address the problem by conducting interviews and an online survey with healthcare professionals. Factor Analysis Information Risk (FAIR) and Technology acceptance models (TAM) are utilized for this study. Humayun, M. (2021). Industry 4.0 and cyber security issues and challenges. Turkish Journal of Computer and Mathematics Education (TURCOMAT), 12(10), 2957-2971.Research questionsWhat are the most common types of social attacks against humans encountered by healthcare organizations?What policies and governance adopted by healthcare organizations have resulted in enhanced resilience?How does an organization perform a cybersecurity risk assessment to identify the role of humans in the loop for enhancing cybersecurity?What is the role of the training program in enhancing healthcare professionals’ awareness of cyber threats, and how can we measure the impact of training and awareness activities adopted within an organization?What have cyber defense strategies been proposed by national and international organizations to strengthen cyber resilience?Findings: The research aims to synthesize the recent literature on human behavior-related security weaknesses that compromise the cyber defense strategy used by healthcare organizations.====================================================Professor Response:Hi StudentInteresting topic but remember that your research question must fill a scholarly gap in the literature. Also, take care to proof read your APA Style works. Typo’s and grammar mistakes in this one as this is aproposal should be in the future tense. Glad to have you in the class,Good progress on an interesting topic area and good progress on finding scholarly literature, but what is the scholarly gap in the literature. Identifying that gap will help narrow your look at an IT topic in healthcare. Remember too that proper APA Style is essential as you refine your scholarly writing skills needed in this scholarly writing effort. Example, your third paragraph first sentence “…attacks trick…” and use nouns rather than pronouns, ex. “it” HINT, again, the Purdue OWL is a great source of citation and grammar requirements for APA style seventh edition.
