CHICAGO (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
IDentity Theft 911, the nation’s premier consultative provider of identity and data risk management, resolution and education services, today announced that its Chief Privacy Officer Ed Goodman will moderate a panel presentation at the upcoming 2013 PLUS Medical PL Symposium in Chicago from April 10-11, 2013. The panel, titled ‘Technology and Data Security in Medicine: A Delicate Balance’, will be held on Thursday, April 11 at 10:15 a.m. CDT.
The panel will explore the minefield of risks associated with cloud-based solutions and smartphone devices in a medical setting, as well as the potential emerging issues and liabilities. Goodman joins an esteemed list of panelists and speakers at the conference.
Modern data security risks for medical service providers and patients go far beyond network security and the Internet. Exponential growth in smart phone usage and integration with cloud based file storage and management providing access to Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) allows for increased access and convenience to patient information. Unfortunately, it also opens up a host of issues regarding data security and integrity issues. The lively panel discussion will look at:
- The legal risks surrounding smart phone use, social media exposures, and the cloud.
- Developing written policies and practices to better cope with these risks
- The future of medical smartphone usage from a privacy/security perspective
Explaining the panel presentation, Goodman said, “The increase in smartphone usage and the need for convenient, advanced healthcare practices, put cloud computing and EHR front and center. If adopters aren’t well versed in the security risks that could come along with this technology, they could be facing breach fines, penalties, reputational impact, and more.” He adds, “I’m really excited to moderate this panel with such a revered list of panelists. The insight they will share, driven from their own experiences, will be invaluable to those in the medical field looking to stay ahead of the curve in customer service and patient privacy.”
