Refugee Mental Health Resource Network

The Refugee Mental Health Resource Network (RMHRN) free webinar on Cybersecurity was unique for the RMHRN as it addressed the increasing concerns that have arisen from colleagues being hacked and data lost or stolen, resulting in access to confidential information and passwords, and other negative outcomes. The cybersecurity expert, Tom Bennett, provided participants with a better understanding of what cybersecurity is, what it entails, and discussed the important requirements for working electronically in the mental health field, from personal, organizational, and international viewpoints. Participants were also provided with information about different kinds of security software (anti-malware, VPNs, secure messaging options, etc.) and techniques for securing devices. The webinar is available on the Division 56 website.
