Florida requiring cybersecurity training in wake of hospital breaches

Florida is requiring all state employees to undergo cybersecurity training through the CyberSecureFlorida Training Initiative, according to a July 27 report from FOX 13 News.

The statewide effort comes as a result of several recent data breaches, specifically breaches at Hillsborough County and Tampa Bay-based John's Hopkins All Children's Hospital involving the MOVEit file transfer tool and HCA Florida Healthcare hospitals.

The one-day training course consists of presentations from cyber experts discussing the importance of cybersecurity and how criminals take advantage of vulnerabilities in networks. Additionally, it outlines the ways it affects government systems, financial institutions, healthcare facilities and other components of Florida's infrastructure.
