Organizations that collect, maintain and use health data are subject to state and federal health information privacy and security laws, including the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and its implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA”).

Recent enforcement actions and liability risks associated with non-compliance with these health data privacy laws.
Ethical and practical approaches attorneys and their clients may take in preventing and addressing security events, particularly when working in remote environments.
Laws that will be covered during this presentation include:
