In a healthcare organization, staffs’ security practice are not only related to a compound impact from organization’s preparedness in security governance configuration, security planning and policies, risk management, and technology controls, but also related to other factors such as the organization’s business objectives and individual staff’s personal characteristics. It is therefore necessary to take into account multiple dimensions when observing, analyzing, and modelling the security practice in a healthcare organization, in order to better understand the differed performance across different persons, units, departments, and organizations. The PhD research fellow is expected to collect feedback from healthcare staffs, observe, analyze / explain, and model the security practice both qualitatively and quantitatively in healthcare organizations, develop metrics to measure the performance of security practices, and propose verifiable incentivisation schemes to improve the security practice performance in healthcare organizations and their alignment with healthcare business objectives.
