“HIPAA Data Breaches: What's Trending in 2016” 

In 2016, the healthcare industry has seen approximately 215 large-scale data breaches, which has impacted about 14 million individuals.  In addition, we have seen the most active year of HIPAA Enforcement from the Office of Civil Rights.  On top of the increase in enforcement and a continued trend of data breaches, the HIPAA audits have focused on Breach Notification and the processes of an organization.  This presentation will focus on dissecting the data breaches that are occurring in 2016 and looking at lessons learned from organizations impacted by data breaches.  The presentation will also focus on discussing best practices for preventing HIPAA data breaches within organizations.  People attending the presentation will understand current risks to healthcare organizations, key steps to prevent data breaches from happening, and important steps in the breach investigation processes.
