Nashua, NH (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is tasked with safeguarding the protected health information (PHI) of more than 20 million veterans and its employees. John Buck, Director, VA Privacy Service, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Dana Simberkoff, Vice President, Public Sector, HiSoftware, will discuss the aggressive, proactive approach the VA has taken to data privacy across its enterprise platforms for interagency collaboration. Buck and Simberkoff will explore the VA’s comprehensive privacy practice at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit March 7-9 in Washington, DC.
The session, “The VA’s Battle for Privacy Protection: Best Practices from the Digital Front Lines,” will offer a framework of best practices for privacy and data risk management through automated compliance and collaboration on SharePoint. Buck and Simberkoff will discuss specific requirements for delivering a privacy program that makes it easier for users to “do the right thing” than to do the wrong thing.
For more than a decade, the IAPP Global Privacy Summit has been the place where the privacy community meets to exchange ideas. It is the largest and most anticipated privacy conference in the world. Privacy, security and data protection experts from around the globe meet for world-class education and networking opportunities and a forum to share insights. The Summit helps attendees expand their outlook and sharpen the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the privacy practice.
