Ransomware can be absolutely devastating to your practice and can cause a major financial burden as well as embarrassment. Brian Tuttle will be speaking to real life situations that he has personally dealt with on multiple occasions as part of HIPAA investigations relating to ransomware breaches.  He provides specific information regarding multiple incidents and what they practice/business did wrong and how these situations occurred - there are many variables to consider. In addition, Brian discusses specific questions the Office of Civil Rights investigators and FBI will more than likely be asking and how best to answer. Most importantly he speaks to the best ways to prevent this from happening altogether! He uncovers myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law (HIPAA) based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.

In addition, this course covers the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures. Don't always believe what you read online about HIPAA, especially as it relates to encryption and IT, there are a lot of groups selling more than is necessarily required.
