Best Practices for Avoiding & Mitigating Data Breaches in 2016
The events of 2015 changed the game in healthcare. The astonishing amount of data compromised is impacting all levels of healthcare, from large providers to those in private practice and from health plans to business associates. Data security & compliance is no longer a “nice to have” and is now front and center in risk conversations due to the potential financial and reputational impacts.
Join us for a review of what happened during 2015 (at a non-technical level) and what that means for 2016. Beyond sharing best practices, we will talk about:
- Why health records are more valuable on the black market than valid credit cards
- How lessons from mega-breaches (Anthem, BCBS, etc.) are changing industry standards
- How to reduce the costs associated with a data breach by 15-25%
- Underlying cause of the >800% increase in individuals affected by health data breaches
