HIPAA Data Breach: Are you Protecting your HIPAA data from Ramsomware Attacks?

Duration: 90 Minutes
The hacking threat (to today's computer systems) is growing more menacing everyday. The FBI estimates 1 in 5 businesses will get hacked in the next 12 months. Of all the threats to businesses and non-profits, only malware and ransomware in particular, can bring your operation to a complete halt in one day or less. None of your strongest competitors, most heavily regulated bureaucracies, including the IRS, or supplier snafus can bring your business to a halt. But ransomware can. Even a major storm gives you more warning.
Ramsomware Attacks
Instructor: Stephen E. Reade
Product ID: 501799
If you are also a Covered Entity, hybrid or Business Associate (as defined by the HIPAA, HITECH and Omnibus laws), you carry the burden of protecting patient confidentiality. Not only can a successful hack totally stop your organization, any significant loss of patient records (ePHI, PHI) will almost certainly trigger an OCR (Office of Civil Rights, Dept. of HHS) audit, but the audit could also balloon-out to all the BAs (Business Associates) that supply or support you.

As the OCR ramps-up IT auditing and enforcement program under HIPAA Phase II, you simply must know the nature of hacking, viruses, malware and other threats to your patients' privacy. To rely on HIPAA compliance concepts of the last 20 years, or even of the last 2 years is to put your entire organization at risk.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • Why Covered Entities and Business Associates are considered the best hacking targets
  • Basic understanding of hacking, viruses and malware
  • Basic understanding of security layering
  • Phishing, spear-phishing
  • HIPAA compliance
  • Strategies for preventing/avoiding breaches
  • Future trends in IT and hacking
Why Should you Attend
HIPAA compliance is both an ethical and serious business issue. Protecting patient privacy is a major responsibility, yet (by OCR standards) fewer than 30% of Covered Entities comply and fewer than 89% comply with BA rules. A HIPAA breach will be extremely costly (Ponemon Institute estimates it will cost $400/patient) to restore lost, stolen or damaged patient files. It could also trigger an OCR audit, and crippling fines (starting at $50,000 per violation).

Areas Covered
  • HIPAA Compliance
  • Avoiding and responding to hacking & malware attacks
  • Identifying other serious threats to patient confidentiality
  • Steps to take to become and remain HIPAA compliant
  • Managing HIPAA-compliant Business Associate and employee relations
