Surveys: Aid security research by sharing your experience

These two security surveys are aimed at IT pros who can contribute their experience and opinions to research topics focused on security effectiveness in their organizations.

Dr. Sushma Mishra, a professor in the Computer and Information Systems Department of Robert Morris University, is conducting research in the area of information security. To further this research, Dr. Mishra has compiled two surveys aimed at IT professionals.

The first is particularly aimed at understanding the security and privacy practices from the perspective of HIPAA compliance, and the second is geared to understanding the role of policies, system auditing, and penalty measures on improving security controls in an organization.

Each survey will take about 15 minutes of your time, and you are not required to identify yourself or your organization to participate.

Survey #1:  EMR Survey for people who work in healthcare field.

Survey #2: Security effectiveness study.
