In honor of Data Privacy Day, January 28, 2021, Privacy & Security Brainiacs is pleased to provide you with this concise eBook describing three things to do now to dramatically improve the protection of your privacy. Certainly, everyone needs to do more than three things to protect privacy. However, if you take the three actions described in this eBook, you will dramatically improve the protection of your privacy! You can then take a few more actions next month. And the month after.
We are happy to provide our next eBook providing a succinct summary of the HIPAA penalties applied by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in Q4, 2020. As you will see within this complimentary eBook, the penalties continue to be applied not only for HIPAA Security Rule and Privacy Rule noncompliance discovered after breaches have occurred, but more are being applied for HIPAA non-compliance. As more complaints are received by the HHS OCR for non-compliance with the HIPAA requirements for allowing individuals access to their associated health data, those non-compliance penalties are also becoming more commonly applied, and associated fines are being levelled against not just large organizations, but every organization size from the largest down to one-person providers and insurers who do not follow the requirements for providing in a timely manner copies of PHI to the applicable requestors.
With over 30 years of experience in IT, specializing in information security, privacy and compliance throughout that time, we know that executives and key stakeholders want quick summaries of the impacts to organizations for non-compliance sanctions and breach penalties. We created this eBook to provide information security, privacy and compliance leaders with a concise summary of the HIPAA penalties applied by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in Q3, 2020.
