Presented by Mary Potter, Director of Product Development for CORL Technologies
Hosted by Wolters Kluwer
Do you have sleepless nights filled with the worry that a breach at your organization is on the horizon? Are you wondering if you have done enough to protect your patients? Are files of protected health information going out the door to vendors you don’t know exist?
The infamous vendor breaches of Facebook, Equifax, ExpressScripts and Nuance have turned the spotlight on vendor data privacy and its impact on securing personal information.
Healthcare organizations have an obligation to inventory and mitigate the risk of sharing confidential information with their vendors and Business Associates, but the task can seem overwhelming.
Gain a better understanding of the importance of vendor privacy assessments as a part of a holistic risk management program and the next steps for your organization. We will also discuss the following strategies:
- Identify “hidden” vendors that may be receiving protected health information.
- Investigate vendors to understand the risk of doing business.
- Validate vendor controls to assure risks are kept to a minimum.
- Remediate control gaps within your organization and at vendor locations.
