James “Jay” Harmon, Managing Director and Co-Founder of BorderHawk Cyber Security

Due to dramatically increased governmental regulation, covered entities, and healthcare vendors are increasing pressure on the business associate supply chain to beef up their cyber security and information protection and requiring evidence of compliance with the HIPAA Security and Privacy Rule. The reality of HIPAA being law is upon us and time is up from the OCR’s perspective for getting ready. Breaches are continuing to occur and fines will continue to be levied to covered entities and business associates alike. What we do about it to protect our organizations, clients and stakeholders is up to us. This session will explore how business associates, small to large, can get their arms around a risk management program to help ensure the protection of health information in this rapidly evolving industry.

Learning Objectives – At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Recognize how businesses are identified as business associates and clarify current privacy, security and breach obligations under the Final Rule.
  2. Review requirements to conduct business with one another along with real-world examples of the implications of ineffective cyber and data security. ?
  3. Develop methods to communicate commitment to privacy and security of all PHI throughout the healthcare chain of trust.
  4. Discuss relevance of security opinions (e.g., SSAE Soc2) or “certifications” (e.g., HITRUST) and their relationship to security, privacy and compliance.
  5. Discuss an Actionable Plan to Implement a HIPAA Compliance and Risk Management Program
