March 21 Free Webinar to Highlight Findings from The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information
New York, NY, March 15, 2012: On Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. ET, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), The Santa Fe Group/Shared Assessments Program Healthcare Working Group, and the Internet Security Alliance (ISA) will host a free webinar to help health care organizations assess security risks and help them build a business case to better secure protected health information (PHI).
Webinar participants will hear from industry experts who will highlight strategies for health care organizations and findings from the recently released report, The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security:
- Rick Kam, President and Co-Founder, ID Experts, Chairman of the PHI Project
- James C. Pyles, Principal, Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC
- Lynda Martel, Director, Privacy Compliance Communications, DriveSavers Data Recovery, Inc.
- Mary Chaput, CFO and Chief Compliance Officer, Clearwater Compliance, LLC
The report was created through the “PHI Project” – a collaboration of ANSI, via its Identity Theft Prevention and Identity Management Standards Panel (IDSP), in partnership with Shared Assessments and ISA.
The report includes PHIve (PHI Value Estimator) – a 5-step method to estimate the overall potential costs of a data breach to an organization. With this tool, health care organizations can determine an appropriate level of investment needed to strengthen privacy and security programs and reduce the probability of a breach.
The report was released on March 5, 2012, at a news conference at the National Press Club where White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt spoke, followed by a Congressional briefing which included remarks by Joy Pritts, Chief Privacy Officer in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The publication has already been downloaded by more than 1,700 users since its release.
All interested stakeholders are invited to register for the free webinar here.
This free webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 21, at 2:00 p.m. ET and will run approximately 1 hour.
