We invite you to attend our free HIPAA Privacy and Security Workshop on Tuesday, December 6th in Indianapolis, Indiana. During this three-hour educational event, industry expert Marti Arvin will draw on her previous experience in the industry to cover several key topics related to healthcare privacy, security and compliance. Topics covered during the workshop include:
  • HIPAA challenges for both covered entities and business associates, including risk assessments and enforcement
  • Information on compliance audits by OCR, CMS and OIG, including details on the current OCR HIPAA audits
  • Strategies for audit preparedness
  • Security challenges and cybersecurity threats around the industry, as well as best practices to combat them
  • Real-world examples of recent incidents and key takeaways from each

Why You Should Attend

  • OCR has begun the next round of random OCR audits by conducting desk audits of 167 covered entities this summer, while business associates are anticipated to begin receiving audit notifications before the end of the year.
  • Multiple government agencies are imposing fines and penalties through breach settlements and investigations of incidents. In fact, OCR has already issued over $20M in fines so far in 2016.
  • Healthcare breaches are on the rise, and the average cost of a data breach for healthcare organizations is now over $2.2 million, according to the Ponemon Institute.
  • New and trending threats to healthcare security are an increasing concern to the industry and require proactive, not reactive, security measures.

What Past Attendees are Saying

I appreciate an organization that is willing to share information for free. Those that have little to give keep what little they have close. However when you are willing to share for free, there is more to be had and they are truly at the top of their field.
