The Office for the National Coordinator of Health IT (ONC)’s  Office of the Chief Privacy Officer (OCPO) has released a Web-based security training module, called, CyberSecure: Your Medical Practice. The security training module, which was developed with the assistance of the Regional Extension Center Program's Privacy and Security Community of Practice, uses a game format.

The game requires users to respond to privacy and security challenges often faced in a typical small medical practice. Users choosing the right response earn points and see their virtual medical practices flourish. But users making the wrong security decisions can hurt their virtual practices.

The security training game can be accessed at www.healthit.gov/providers-professionals/privacy-security-training-games.
