Webinar: Lessons and Examples from 2021’s HIPAA Breaches and Fines

2021 has been a tough year for the healthcare industry with huge numbers of data breaches occurring and vast numbers of healthcare records exposed as hackers stepped up their attacks on healthcare providers and ransomware actors ran riot.  The HHS’ Office for Civil Rights has continued to impose large numbers of fines on covered entities and business associates for noncompliance with the HIPAA Rules, even during the pandemic. The trend for the past year was a major focus on violations of the HIPAA Right of Access, and many of the fines were imposed on smaller healthcare practices.

The webinar will cover:

  • The data breaches and fines in 2021 (what caused them, who was affected, etc.)
  • How to protect yourself from suffering a breach or financial penalty in the New Year.
  • Predictions of what will happen in the future and what to look out for

You will also get the inside scoop from compliance experts and find out how you can start protecting your business in 2022!

Due to popular demand, this January webinar is being run again on February 17, 2022.
