Data Privacy and Security for Healthcare and Biosciences


Many companies in the healthcare and bioscience industries utilize Protected Health Information (PHI) or Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to develop and test products such as medical devices and mobile applications, or to perform other services, including data analysis, on their customer’s healthcare related data. This course examines the important data privacy and security issues that govern these industries.
