Employer's HIPAA Privacy And Security Responsibilities
2/15/2010


Personal and company confidential data, exceedingly valuable assets, are under siege. Organizations across the country and locally have experienced significant data breaches resulting in unauthorized access to a vast amount of personal and company confidential information. At the same time, technology continues to advance rapidly, permitting larger and larger quantities of information to be maintained, accessed, and transmitted with the push of a button or downloading seeming harmless software. In this environment, with increasing demands for higher productivity and greater access to information, particularly in the legal field, companies continue to struggle to meet those demands while at the same time protecting confidential personal and company information. You will gain a better understanding about the recent developments in federal and state privacy and data security laws, particularly the expansion of HIPAA under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the recently issued Massachusetts privacy regulations that become effective January 1, 2010.
