Nashville,TN (PRWEB) January 21, 2016
Clearwater Compliance is proud to partner with the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) to present an educational webinar, “What Counsel Needs to Know about Bona Fide Risk Analyses,” on January 25.
The heavily-regulated healthcare industry and its activities and operations are subject to numerous and complex state and federal rules...including HIPAA regulations, which set out minimum requirements to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of protected health information.
This webinar, available to AHLA members and others interested in information and business risk management, will highlight the nine essential elements of a bona fide information security risk analysis, and its use in reducing legal, financial, and regulatory risks that may result from failure to complete a proper risk analysis.
Participants will learn the difference between a risk analysis, a compliance gap assessment (both of which are required under the HIPAA Security Rule), and technical security testing; see examples from OCR investigations and settlements that demonstrate what regulators expect to see in a risk analysis and risk management plan; and better understand the role of attorneys and privilege in the analysis process.
This webinar will be presented January 25, 2016 at 2 p.m. EST. The cost varies for AHLA members and non-members. Learn more about the topics and register at: https://distancelearning.healthlawyers.org/products/what-counsel-needs-to-know-about-bona-fide-risk-analyses-intermediate
