Cutting Through the Noise: Determining Whether Your Vendor’s Security Incident Is a Breach

CynergisTek’s David Holtzman, Executive Advisor; Thora Johnson, Partner at Venable LLP; Shari Lewison, Chief Information Security
Officer at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics 

This session will discuss:

  • Look beneath the surface of your vendor’s security incident report to identify if there is a reportable breach and the roles your privacy, compliance, and security professionals, in-house counsel, and outside consultants and advisers should play
  • Explore the questions that need to be asked to identify the root cause of the incident. How to determine the extent of information needed to assess the risk of data compromise. How to view the vendor’s own assessment critically
  • Answer these questions through scenarios applying not only a HIPAA lens but also the patchwork of state health information privacy rules, for a complete picture on what is a reportable breach, who must be notified by whom, and when it must be reported

The breakout session will be on April 9th, from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Click here for more details.
