WEBINAR: HIPAA, Healthcare & Cybersecurity

If you are not prepared to deal with Cybersecurity issues your organization can be brought to its knees.

More than one healthcare entity has had to scrap its entire IT infrastructure to recover from an attack, at a cost of millions of dollars, and entities that are not sufficiently prepared to deal with cybersecurity issues may receive penalties from the US Department of Health and Human Services if a breach results. Now is the time to be sure your cybersecurity stance is strong and resilient and follows recommendations by HHS and NIST.

In this session, we will examine how following the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule and specifically taking into consideration cyber-threats can help a healthcare entity prepare itself to defend against cyber-attacks and the significant impacts to privacy, security, and patient care and safety that can result. We will learn about the latest guidance and tools for assisting in preparation and response to cyber-attacks, and what to do if the attack is successful and creates an incident that must be managed and recovered from.

Target Audience
Compliance officers, privacy and security officers, health information management leadership and staff, information security, and patient relations, as well as staff in patient intake and frontline patient relations. Also, others interested in or responsible for patient communications, information management, and privacy and security of protected health information (PHI) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Act should attend.
