Survey request on security practices

Survey request on security practices: AIDH student member Tafheem Wani, from the University of Melbourne, is one of the researchers undertaking an online survey among heads of IT/IT security in hospitals to explore Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) security practices in Australian hospitals.

The survey is part of a research study which aims to develop an evidence-based, standardised and best practice security framework dedicated to hospital BYOD.

This framework will aid in improving privacy and confidentially of patient data, as well as personal data of hospital employees in an efficient manner. It will also provide a roadmap for improving the security measures taken by hospitals and therefore enable the establishment of a well-informed and contextualised BYOD strategy.

Researchers in this study also include Associate Professor Dr Kathleen Gray, Senior Lecturer Dr Antonette Mendoza.

Survey responses are anonymous so no information will be requested, nor will any results be published, that could individually identify a respondent or a hospital.

If you hold a position such as hospital CIO/CISO/IT manager/IT security manager, please participate in the survey as it will be a valuable addition to research in an area of public concern.

Findings from this research could lead to greater understanding of BYOD security practices in Australian hospitals and therefore the development of an evidence based, well informed framework.

The researchers would be happy to share the findings with you or present the research to specific group meetings if you wish. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please use the link to participate.
