Clearwater Compliance announced today that the Health Care Compliance Association [HCCA] has selected Clearwater’s CEO and founder Bob Chaput, CISSP, CIPP/US, CHP, CHSS to present a webinar on the critical topic of completing a bona fide HIPAA security Risk Analysis. Chaput’s presentation will enable attendees to explain why a security risk analysis is the core foundational HIPAA Security Rule compliance activity, understand the fundamental components of a bona fide risk analysis, cite the specific HIPAA regulatory requirements and pertinent guidance from the US Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] Office for Civil Rights [OCR], know how to access the relevant special risk analysis publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST], and conduct a bona fide HIPAA Security Risk Analysis.

“With the publication of the HIPAA/HITECH Omnibus Final Rule in January of this year, both the compliance hurdles and the penalties for non-compliance were significantly increased,” Chaput noted. “Further, in recent OCR audits, the failure to conduct a bona fide Security Risk Analysis was the most cited reason for findings of non-compliance. In this webinar, we will be discussing both the challenges and best practices for conducting a bona fide analysis that will not only pass muster with OCR investigators and auditors but which will also serve as the necessary foundation for a covered entity’s entire compliance program.”

James S. Mathis, JD, CHC, CHP, Chief Clinical Enterprise Compliance Officer, Vanderbilt University Medical Center said, “Bob Chaput combines unique business and technical experience with the unsurpassed program tools of Clearwater Compliance to provide thorough and actionable advice. This webinar will be invaluable to anyone who is not confident with their HIPAA Security Risk Analysis process.”

This HCCA-sponsored webinar will be held September 16, 2013 from 11:00-1:00 central time. Interested parties can register for the webinar under the Events tab on the HCCA website.
