This CPE training event is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively implement the HIPAA Security Rule within their organizations.
The HIPAA Security Rule focuses on safeguarding electronic protected health information (ePHI) to ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Implementing this rule is crucial for healthcare organizations and their business associates to protect sensitive patient information from unauthorized access, breaches, and other cybersecurity threats.
In this training event, we will review the NIST SP 800-66 R2, which provides guidance and resources for implementing the HIPAA Security Rule. Our expert instructor will take you through the key considerations when implementing the rule and help you gain a deep understanding of its requirements.
Topics covered during the training include:
- Overview of the HIPAA Security Rule: We will explore the fundamental principles and objectives of the rule, emphasizing the protection of ePHI and the importance of risk management.
- NIST SP 800-66 R2: We will examine the NIST special publication, which offers valuable guidance on implementing the HIPAA Security Rule. You will learn how to apply the framework within your organization and align it with industry best practices.
- Risk Assessment and Management: Understanding the significance of conducting risk assessments and developing effective risk management strategies to identify and mitigate potential threats to ePHI.
- Technical Safeguards: Exploring the technical safeguards required for securing ePHI, including access controls, encryption, audit controls, and integrity controls.
- Physical Safeguards: Discussing the physical safeguards necessary to protect ePHI stored in physical formats, such as data centers, workstations, and mobile devices.
- Administrative Safeguards: Examining the administrative safeguards that healthcare organizations must implement to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule, such as security policies and procedures, workforce training, and incident response planning.
- Incident Response and Breach Notification: Understanding the steps involved in responding to security incidents and complying with breach notification requirements.
