InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
While the HIPAA rules have been in place for years now, the focus of their application has recently changed as technologies and practices have changed, and changes to the rules are also on the horizon. In addition, there are changes in other regulations that interact with HIPAA requirements, and that require consideration in your planning. This session will focus on understanding what are the challenges that a HIPAA Privacy Officer faces today, and what are the areas of HIPAA that are changing. The session will discuss the latest topics of interest in detail and describe how they relate to the regulations and their enforcement today.
