This position may involve support of various hospitals and health care systems within the UNC Health Care System, but will be employed by Rex Hospital, Inc. (this includes, but is not limited to, for purposes of payroll, health benefits, retirement options, and applicable policies).
The Information Security Office of the UNCHCS Information Services Division is looking for an IT professional experienced in design, development, configuration, implementation and technical support of clinical systems with large medical databases. This role is intended to improve the UNCHCS security posture with continuous assessment and remediation of security flaws in the UNCHCS clinical data warehouse, EMR and medical data archive applications and databases, configuration, change and support process and privileged accesses. The focus of this position is on health care application software and databases security (versus infrastructure security). As such, the candidate filling this position will bring expert knowledge and experience of health care application and database security pitfalls and controls learned from experience performing design, development, configuration, implementation or technical support of health care applications and databases.
Description of Job Responsibilities:
1. Security Architecture, Consulting and Evaluation – Document and maintain security architecture of assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases using diagrams and narratives. Maintain and improve standards, processes and tools to perform repeatable security evaluations on assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases. Perform baseline and recurring security evaluations after major changes to applications and databases, and to the security threat landscape.
2. Information Security Risk Analysis – Develop, improve and apply tools, methods and processes to analyze risk from threats and vulnerabilities to assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases. Write appropriate recommendations that will bring risks to an acceptable level. Develop and deliver audience appropriate information security assessment and recommendation presentations and reports. Work with applications and database support teams to plan and implement remediation actions. Establish and maintain sound metrics to track and demonstrate information security improvement and risk management of assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases over time.
3. Vulnerability Management – Configure, improve and apply UNCHCS vulnerability management tools and processes to assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases.
4. Data Analysis - Analyze security threat intelligence sources pertinent to assigned UNCHCS applications and databases.
Select log data from multiple sources (i.e. dataflow logs, web logs, application logs, database logs, user and administrator activity logs) for security event information management (SIEM) system ingest, that are relevant to a real or potential information security breach to assigned UNCHCS health care applications and databases, or to support decision making and risk mitigation. Tune and calibrate SIEM system inputs and output algorithms for early detection of threats to assigned UNCHCS applications and databases.
5. Security Incident Prevention, Detection and Handling – Apply UNCHCS and Information Services Division incident management policy, standards and procedures. Research, evaluate, recommend, design, implement or utilize security solutions to prevent and detect security incidents that target health care applications and databases. Such tools include but are not limited to, data loss protection (DLP) systems, security incident event management (SIEM) systems, and security functionality built into health care applications and databases (i.e. security event logging, configuration management.) Monitor application and database log data and SIEM outputs, recognize anomalous behavior, and research, handle and escalate security incidents appropriately. Write professional and factual incident reports. Make and implement recommendations for assigned UNCHCS applications and database security incident preparedness, recovery and prevention.
6. Project Management - Lead discovery and information gathering sessions. Perform alternatives analysis documenting pros and cons, cost, feasibility, risk and other information to support a decision to select the best solution. Manage small to medium projects; assemble project participants to organize work to complete specific tasks on projects. Organize and facilitate meetings to identify and remove barriers, and to progress work that advances the security agenda. Follow-up with assignees on incomplete tasks and open issues. Provide detailed communication between disparate teams to keep project moving.
