Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX will be presenting this informative webinar. Cybersecurity risk management and the potential for enforcement actions is not diminishing. An area of increasing interest by the Federal Trade Commission, the United States Department of Justice, and Congress is third parties taking sensitive data (especially by social media and search engine giants), including protected health information, without obtaining affirmative patient/consumer consent and benefiting financially. The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, the agency tasked with enforcing HIPAA, also plays a critical role. The purpose of this presentation is to address different federal government initiatives, recent enforcement actions and incidents, and risk mitigation.
