Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) enforcement is on the rise. Are you ready? Because many of you peers are not and are failing the test—to the tune of millions of dollars.
Phase 1 nationwide HIPAA audit results are shocking: In September, 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights reported that 83 percent of audited entities had “inadequate” or “failure” security risk analysis grades. The grades for risk management plans were even worse! Recently, a HIPAA-regulated organization was fined $3.5 million for breaches and a failed risk analysis. Don’t be caught off guard!
Join HIPAA compliance expert C.J. Wolf in this information-packed webinar as he shows you why HIPAA’s Security Risk Analysis is so important, the dangers of not performing one, and how to oversee the fulfillment of a risk analysis. With increased enforcement and huge fines looming, performing a successful HIPAA security risk analysis has never been more important. And, remember, if you participate in MACRA, the analysis is required; but, even if your organization does not participate, performing this analysis is essential to HIPAA compliance. So don’t wait to get started.
After attending this instructive session, you will be aware of recent enforcement actions—and the fines levied for security risk analysis failures. You’ll be better able to forecast future enforcement trends. And you’ll understand both how to compliantly perform a HIPAA security risk analysis and how to remediate your findings. Don’t expose your organization to unnecessary risk—perform an assessment with confidence.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover in this webinar:
