The Maryland Health Care Commission’s (MHCC) has released a Cybersecurity Self-Assessment Readiness Tool  to assist small health care organizations in assessing cybersecurity readiness, which is available on MHCC’s website.  

In response to growing cybersecurity concerns, the Maryland Health Care Commission developed a Cybersecurity Self-Assessment Readiness Tool (tool) to assist organizations with assessing cybersecurity readiness.  The tool consists of a series of self-evaluation statements that were developed using elements from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).   Users can select one of three answer choices that best describes their organization’s readiness for meeting best practices addressed by the statement, and calculate a readiness percent to get an overall readiness indicator for their organization.  Results from the tool can help inform organizations about the adequacy of existing cyber protections.  A copy of the tool can be found at:
