HHS/OCR Commissioner Leon Rodriguez presented his views on the state of healthcare privacy, security and data breach notification at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit last week in Washington, D.C. The title of this post is based on a question put to him by a neighbor as to whether the efforts in Rulemaking and enforcement actions by OCR (the squeeze) yield the positive outcomes and benefits (the juice) that the agency is trying to bring about.Read More »
Almost every business collects sensitive data. This means that almost all businesses are at risk of a privacy breach that results in unplanned expenses like forensics, legal fees, notification and monitoring costs. Some breaches even have legal fees from class action lawsuits or regulatory actions. For other unplanned expenses like a building fire or a heart attack, companies and individuals alike purchase insurance as a way to protect themselves and/or their assets. For organizations with sensitive data, which is most, there is cyber/privacy liability insurance to protect them, so why don’t all organizations buy this coverage.Read More »
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) this week, as part of the RSA 2013 Conference, released its “Notorious Nine”. This is a list of the top threats associated with cloud computing. At the top of the charts for 2013 – data breaches.

As most of you are already aware at this point, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) published the Final HIPAA Omnibus Rule in the Federal Register last month on January 25, 2013. So the question I think many of you should be asking is, so "what does this mean for me and my organization?"Read More »

I was asked recently by HITECH Answers to address some questions about the recently published HIPAA Omnibus Rule which addresses privacy, security and breach notification issues for HIPAA covered entities and business associates. The rules have been characterized as bringing "sweeping changes" in these areas. I think certainly that there are numerous areas within the Final Rules that will require the careful attention of all members of the healthcare ecosystem. Without a doubt, now that the Final Rules have been issued the breadth and intensity of investigations and enforcement actions by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) are only likely to increase, exposing healthcare organizations and their business partners to greater risks. Learn more about the Rules and their implications at the upcoming webinar: HIPAA Final Rules: What you need to know and do. Speakers include Adam Greene, Partner at Davis Wright Tremaine. Previously, Adam was a regulator at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where he played a fundamental role in administering and enforcing the HIPAA rules.Read More »
