Program Content: As the use of cloud, data processing, data storage, and “everything as a service” organizations has proliferated, so has the need for entities to understand and address the risks associated with managing sensitive information (PHI/PII) themselves as well as ensuring that their partners and business associates are doing likewise. This risk assessment process is required to comply with HIPAA, but the lack of standardized processes and prescriptive controls specified by the requirements in the HIPAA Security Rule make the self-assessment process, preparing for certification, and remediation of compliance gaps a hefty undertaking.

In this webcast, we will discuss two options, System and Organization Controls (SOC) reports and HITRUST Validated Assessments as well as related tools that Covered Entities (CEs) and Business Associates (BAs) can use to demonstrate meeting their HIPAA compliance obligations.

Learning objectives

  • Define HIPAA and its applicability to my organization, partners and customers.
  • Describe the nature and purpose of the various attestation standards as they relate to HIPAA compliance efforts.
