Techopedia explains HealthCare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner (HCISSP)

ISC2 is a non-profit agency described as the world’s largest IT security organization.

As part of ISC2’s work in IT security, it has created the HealthCare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner certification to assist employers with industry conventions concerning privacy and security.

The HCISPP certification tests six 'domains’ including the healthcare regulatory environment, information governance and third-party risk management.

There are also job prerequisites attached to this certification, such as that the applicant must have worked for two years in a related position.

An HCISPP certification is part of an individual’s preparation for dealing with sensitive patient health information. The rationale behind offering this certification is that with new kinds of government regulations and complex healthcare IT resources, it makes sense to provide advanced testing for individuals who will be at the helm of directing IT strategy for healthcare oriented businesses.
