Topic: Protecting your practice from external and internal threats – HIPAA Compliance & Cybersecurity

Topic Description:

HIPAA compliance and cybersecurity are tightly intertwined for a reason. As practices continue to move into the digital age, cyber threats become a larger concern. Additionally, the more PHI your practice contains and has access to, the larger your target becomes. In this session we will discuss how to mitigate risk from external and internal threats and how that ties into your cybersecurity strategy. We are living in an age now where the solutions to prevent data breaches and HIPAA violations are far less than the damage they can cause your practice. Join us as we teach you how to protect yourself, your practice and your patients without expending valuable time, resources and dollars.
