Webinar: Your 2019 MIPS Security Risk Analysis: 6 Steps to Compliance (11/14/19)

Healthcare organizations often struggle with risk analyses, as OCR’s HIPAA enforcement actions clearly show. The risk analysis is the most common HIPAA violation cited in OCR’s enforcement actions.

The risk analysis is essential as it allows healthcare organizations to identify all risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI. Those risks can then be reduced to a reasonable and acceptable level. A risk assessment should be completed regularly, with the frequency determined by the circumstances of their environment. For many healthcare organizations, this will be annually.

An annual security risk analysis (SRA) is a requirement of the 2019 MIPS Performance Year to comply with Promoting Interoperability. The SRA makes up 25% of the performance score so it is essential that this critical process is completed. The deadline for completing the SRA is December 31, 2019.

If you have yet to conduct your SRA for 2019 and are not yet ready to attest to meeting this objective, help is at hand. HIPAA Journal sponsor, Compliancy Group, is hosting a webinar in conjunction with Compulink Healthcare Solutions which covers this important aspect of compliance.

At the webinar, Compliancy Group and Compulink Healthcare Solutions’ Director of Professional Relations and Government Programs, Dr. Karen Perry, will be discussing the security risk analysis and how you can implement appropriate safeguards to satisfy the MIPS SRA requirement.

At the end of the event you will have access to the tools you need to confidently achieve your mission-critical priorities, ensure compliance, and help your organization thrive in a fast-evolving digital landscape.

Webinar: Atlantic.Net and Compliancy Group Offer Help on Cybersecurity and HIPAA Compliance

The HIPAA-compliant hosting company,, is teaming up with HIPAA-compliance specialists Compliancy Group for a webinar to explain some easy-to-implement steps healthcare organizations can take to quickly improve their security posture, become more resilient to cyberattacks, and ensure they continue to stay compliant with HIPAA regulations.

Healthcare organizations are being targeted by cybercriminals for the data they hold. Patient data can be sold for big bucks on the black market, there a growing trade in stolen healthcare login credentials, and ransomware is being used to extort money from hospitals and medical practices. For the past two months, healthcare data breaches have been reported at a rate of more than 1.5 per day, which is twice the rate of 2018. Cybersecurity has never been more important.

Many practices lack the internal resources to devote to cybersecurity and budgets are stretched. Finding the funds to devote to improving cybersecurity protections can be a major challenge, so it is important to ensure any additional funding is well spent.

In the webinar, Altantic.Net’s experts will be speaking about HIPAA-compliant cloud services and cybersecurity and Compliancy Group’s compliance specialists will walk attendees through some of the complexities of HIPAA to help attendees develop a plan to improve cybersecurity, ensure compliance, and avoid regulatory fines.

Webinar: Ransomware, Malware, Phishing, and HIPAA Compliance

Compliancy Group is offering healthcare professionals an opportunity to take part in a webinar covering the main threats facing the healthcare industry.

Threats such as ransomware, malware, and phishing will be discussed by compliance experts in relation to HIPAA and the privacy and security of patient data.

Cybersecurity has become more important than ever in healthcare. The industry is seen as a weak target by hackers, large volumes of data are stored, and patient information carries a high value on the black market.

April 2019 saw the highest number of healthcare data breaches in a single month and more healthcare data breaches were reported in 2018 than in any other year to date. The increased frequency of attacks on organizations of all sizes highlights just how important cybersecurity has become.

Cyberattacks are not only negatively affecting businesses in the healthcare sector, but also place the privacy of patient’s health information at risk. While it was once sufficient to implement standard security tools, the sophisticated nature of attacks today mean new solutions are required to protect against cyberattacks.

Protecting against cyberattacks while ensuring compliance with HIPAA can be a challenge and oversights could easily lead to a costly breach or regulatory fine.

In the latest Compliancy Group webinar, compliancy experts will walk you through the inns and outs of the regulations and you can find out more about cybersecurity with respect to the requirements of HIPAA and HITECH.

Webinar: June 18, 2019: Addressing Mental Health for Improved Community Safety

On Tuesday, June 18, 2019, Rave Mobile Safety will be hosting a webinar that aims to improve understanding of mental health issues, the challenges community members face dealing with individuals with mental health disorders, and how to account for mental health in day to day operations.

Many healthcare professionals, business owners, schools, and other community members are aware of the importance of being proactive and improving mental health awareness in the community but are unsure about the best approach to take.

The webinar will provide the information you need to make more of a difference and will show how improved communication and greater collaboration with first responders, 9-1-1 call takers, school administrator and other teams in the community are essential for improving understanding of people in the community suffering from mental health issues.

The event will be hosted by Rave Mobile Security MPA, ENP, Vice President of Customer Success, Noah Reiter, who will be joined by former Dallas Police Chief, David Brown.

Police figures show around 10% of all police calls involve individuals with mental health issues. David Brown will be providing insights into the steps taken by his department to improve mental health awareness through community policing and the benefits this proactive approach had on the community.

During his tenure, David Brown oversaw the most significant reduction of crime in the history of Dallas, with the level of violent and non-violent crime falling to 50- and 40-year lows respectively. Officer-involved shootings were slashed by 40% and Dallas had the lowest murder rate in 80 years.

These improvements were made possible by improved understanding of mental health issues and by engaging in the kind of dialogue that leads to solutions.

Webinar attendees will discover how they can improve collaboration with 9-1-1 call takers, law enforcement, first responders, school administrators, and other teams in the community and play their part in proactively addressing and improving mental health awareness.

Webinar: April 4, 2019: Email Security, DMARC, and Sandboxing

The healthcare industry is particularly vulnerable to phishing attacks and successful attacks commonly result in significant data breaches. It is now something of a rarity for a week to pass without a healthcare phishing attack being reported.

While healthcare organizations are providing security awareness training to staff and are using email security solutions, those defenses are not always effective.

To improve understanding of why advanced attacks are managing to evade detection by traditional email security solutions, email security solution provider TitanHQ is hosting a webinar.

During the webinar TitanHQ will explain about the threat from phishing and how organizations can protect themselves and their customers/patients. The webinar will also explain how two new features of TitanHQ’s SpamTitan email security solution – DMARC authentication and sandboxing – can protect against advanced email threats, zero-day attacks, malware, phishing, and spoofing.
