Topic Background
HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and now changes under the Omnibus Rule require covered entities and business associates to report certain breaches. Not all security incidents are breaches, and not all breaches are reportable breaches. This webinar will explain the law in easy-to-understand terms to help covered entities and business associates comply as quickly, easily, and effectively as possible in case they experience a security incident that ripens into a reportable breach so that they can stand a better chance of avoiding as much as a seven-figure fine for violation of the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule. This webinar will also help you learn how not to report something that you don’t need to report that might get you on the DHHS radar screen unnecessarily. This webinar will teach you how to frame what happened, if you do need to report it, so as to minimize your potential liability.
