Technology in healthcare is changing and so to are the ways in which healthcare providers store, transmit and utilize data. With the mobility of healthcare information, and the headlines of data breaches, is your healthcare practice protected and prepared?
An effective HIPAA Compliance program must include protections to reduce the risk of data breaches and loss from mobile devices, including laptops, smart phones, portable devices, and the like. Statistics over the past several years have linked the largest number of breaches to the mobility of information through devices. By establishing a program to secure, track and monitor your devices, you will reduce the likelihood of an expensive data breach.
In the event of a breach, is your organization prepared to respond quickly and endure the financial and resources drain that comes with a breach investigation and reporting? Have you adequately ensured your organization is protected through cyber liability insurance?
$250 per practice includes lunch for two participants.
For additional participants, or to register by phone, please call (314) 541-2220.
