The Health Care Administrators Association (HCAA) has selected Clearwater Compliance CEO and founder Bob Chaput, CISSP, CIPP/US, CHP, CHSS, to lead a webinar titled, “How to Conduct a Bona Fide HIPAA Security Risk Analysis.” The web-based event will be held January 14, 2014, at 12 noon EST. HCAA Members and Non-Members may attend this live web event.
With a rising number of complaints, high-profile breaches and sub-par performance by audited and investigated organizations, the Office for Civil Rights is lowering the boom on organizations failing to complete the foundational Risk Analysis requirement in the HIPAA Security Rule. During this live session, Chaput will help attendees ensure they are appropriately responding to OCR requirements by:
- Describing the fundamentals of risk and what comprises a bona fide Risk Analysis
- Discussing the challenges of completing a bona fide Risk Analysis
- Citing the specific HIPAA regulatory requirements and HHS/OCR Guidance
- Detailing the key steps involved in completing a bona fide Risk Analysis
- Referencing relevant NIST Special Publications related to Risk Analysis
Risk analysis is a core foundational step toward HIPAA compliance, yet organizations largely have been found lacking in this area. In 2012, 68 percent of Covered Entities were found to not have met the risk analysis requirement when audited by the Office for Civil Rights. Since 2008, 100 percent of settled cases from OCR investigations cited bona fide Security Risk Analysis as a corrective action plan requirement. Third Party Administrators (i.e. members of HCAA) are Business Associates who must meet this same risk analysis requirement as their Covered Entity customers.
“Amidst the healthcare market’s increasing demand for privacy and security, the state of risk management of information is a mess,” said Bob Chaput, CEO and founder of Clearwater Compliance. “Most organizations – including HCAA members – are misinformed about how to successfully comply with this HIPAA requirement. In this webinar, we will separate fact from fiction and help attendees understand how to effectively conduct a risk analysis.”
The cost of the webinar is $25 for HCAA members and $100 for non-members. Those interested can learn more and register here.
