About the Saegis Shield Program

On Demand Available all year

Saegis Shield is a comprehensive, accredited online cybersecurity and privacy education program that addresses the unique needs of Canadian healthcare environments.

It is designed to strengthen what experts consider the best defence against cyber-attacks that target healthcare practices, clinics, hospitals and institutions: the “human defence”.

What is the “Human Defence”?

The human defence against cyber attacks comes from awareness and an understanding of cybersafe habits among all Canadian healthcare professionals, including:

  • Physicians, nurses and other providers
  • Clinic directors, administrators, managers and staff
  • Hospital and healthcare institution staff
How does Saegis Shield work?

Saegis Shield is a subscription-based awareness and education program that is affordable and user-friendly. Healthcare professionals, physicians, and staff simply log in to the program and are provided with:

  • A curriculum of online courses designed with busy healthcare schedules in mind – even one 15-minute module per week can help clinic and hospital staff develop cybersafe habits
  • A measure of individual and organizational readiness to prevent, recognize and manage costly breaches
  • A summary of the current level of cyber risk in the healthcare environment
