We will explore the statistics involved with protecting PHI, discuss their effectiveness, discuss breach numbers, causes of breaches, etc. We will also examine how to mitigate the risks to your organization. We will also discuss effective staff training. Having a bad training is actually worse that having no training, and we will discuss the critical components that all employees should know and understand.

Why should you attend: To learn how effective HIPAA has been, currently is, and, barring any changes, may be in the future. We will also examine some very public data breaches that have involved PHI.
