Data and Protected Health Information (PHI) security is more important than ever. In fact, the FBI has informed the healthcare industry to continue to expect both domestic and international hacker attacks. The FBI has warned the healthcare industry that their systems were found to be laxer in comparison with other sectors. Healthcare data breaches have affected over 255 million patient records, and that number continues to rise. It’s noteworthy to point out that data breaches cost the industry $5.6 billion each year and could put a small to medium sized medical practice out of business. This session will provide best practices to prepare you and your organization for such events.
