Nashville,TN (PRWEB) September 28, 2015 -- October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and to recognize the importance of safeguarding sensitive information Clearwater Compliance is excited to announce a FBI Special Agent as its keynote luncheon speaker at its upcoming HIPAA Compliance Program BootCamp™ entitled “Improved Quality of Care & Patient Safety through Better Information Risk Management.”
Due to the increasing threat to healthcare information, said to now be the richest source of marketable personal information for hackers, and the need for industry professionals to brace against attacks from cyber criminals, this upcoming BootCamp™ is specifically designed to guide attendees to enact stronger information security measures. Theft of credit cards is quickly becoming a thing of the past, as cyber criminals know that by hacking medical records, they can receive copious amounts of sensitive information in one place.
Clearwater Compliance has brought in an FBI ‘Cyber Security’ Special Agent to speak to the BootCamp™ attendees about trends the FBI is seeing now that healthcare is a top target, and what healthcare organizations should be doing about it.
In addition to the Keynote speaker, Clearwater Compliance’s 9-hour educational event features 12 local and national information risk management experts that will dig deep into the HIPAA Security, Privacy and Breach Notification Rules. This BootCamp™ provides attendees with the proper information to take further steps to safeguard the privacy and security of patient information by operationalizing and maturing their Information Risk Management program.
Prior attendees are quick to praise the comprehensive and in-depth curriculum of the Clearwater BootCamp events. “The [educational] program covered all of the essential elements of a solid Risk Management Program and best practices,” says Howard Phillip, Infosec Manager, MD Live.
Attendees can earn up to 10.8 CPEs by attending the event. Clearwater Compliance has chosen an ideal time and location as the BootCamp™ is being held in October, which is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The event will take place at the Kovens Conference Center in Miami, Florida on Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 7 am to 5 pm EDT.
Through this event, Clearwater Compliance has created a great opportunity to raise awareness of the pitfalls of securing patient information and how to avoid them. Given that the BootCamp™ is in beautiful Miami , Florida, attendees can enjoy the mild and sunny climate during October when most people are in the midst of transitioning into fall and chillier temperatures.
