Negotiating occurs in every facet of business and law. From contractual negotiations through settlement negotiations, it is a delicate dance. There are a variety of classic negotiation techniques, which include extreme posturing and “anchoring”. Healthcare and cybersecurity present unique challenges because of the looming exposure to a government investigation and either a civil and/or criminal action, even if a settlement is reached between two private parties. The purpose of this presentation is to provide approaches when negotiating contracts, settlements, and other items, which arise in healthcare and the cybersecurity industries.

Stop the Insanity! Why Healthcare Organizations Need to Take a New Approach to Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Training
Rebecca L. Rakoski, managing partner at XPAN Law Partners and Sajed Naseem, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) from NJ Courts are presenting this engaging webinar. Employees are one of an organization’s greatest strengths, but also its greatest weaknesses. For years cybersecurity and data privacy advocates have been arguing that training employees is the only way to safeguard the organization. This is especially true in the healthcare arena where HIPAA training is required. However, these same healthcare organizations engage in training for their employees only to stare down the barrel of a data breach caused by one of those trained employees.The question becomes, why do we continue to repeat the same exercise expecting a different outcome?
One of the most crucial, yet complex, aspects of the healthcare sector is ensuring compliance. Every organization and individual offering healthcare or healthcare-related services needs to be aware of the regulations and laws and follow compliant practices. This is the only way to stay protected and achieve long-term success in the sector.

Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX presents. Throughout the pandemic, HHS-OCR has announced the use of its enforcement discretion when bringing forth HIPAA-related enforcement actions. This trend appears to be continuing as the vaccine roles out. Additionally, proposed changes to the Privacy Rule were released in December 2020 and OCR continues to enforce violations against providers for not providing a patient with his/her medical records. This presentation provides a timely overview of these items, as well as addressing key terms such “reasonable” and “good faith” in the context of protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information.
