We’ve already seen 435 breaches of personal health information impacting more than million individual records since 2009
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Despite well-known, stringent government regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), some organizations continue to be surprised by the potential legal liability for not effectively protecting digitized health information. In response, Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security will host “Patient Data Protection Diagnosis: How to Guard Healthcare Information with Device Control and Data Encryption” on August 7.
Participants in this free event will learn:
- What PHI breaches are currently documented by the US Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS) and why these breaches are occurring;
- How a healthcare organization can mitigate costs with encryption technologies;
- What to look for in device control and full disc encryption solutions
The webcast will be hosted by Eric Ogren, Founder and President of research firm, The Ogren Group and Chris Merritt, Solution Marketing Director at Lumension.
“We’ve already seen 435 breaches of personal health information impacting more than million individual records since 2009,” says Merritt. “Clearly the message needs to be conveyed that we are at a critical crossroads in the protection of medical data.”
The webcast will take place on Tuesday, August 7 at 11a.m. EDT. For more information or to register, please visit: “Patient Data Protection Diagnosis: How to Guard Healthcare Information with Device Control and Data Encryption.”
