Abstract

Information Security Awareness among employees in healthcare has become an essential part in safeguarding health information systems against cyber-attacks and data breaches. We present three simple security awareness questions that can be included in larger surveys gauging other aspects of information systems. The questions have been tested in a national Danish survey to evaluate correlations among medical profession, computer proficiency, experience, and place of employment. We find that dissatisfaction with system usability is strongly linked with reduced information security awareness, and that clinical professions have different responses to security concerns.
