Raymond Ribble is the CEO and Founder at SPHER, Inc. a market-leading compliance analytics, cyber-security solution addressing: HIPAA compliance, State Privacy Laws, and ePHI security threats and our presenter for this webinar. Snooping and Insider threats are exactly why user monitoring and ePHI access strategies are vital to the security of sensitive patient information and data protection. While it is an unsettling thought, not all cybersecurity incidents are traced from employee negligence. With so much attention and money surrounding cybersecurity in the healthcare industry, malicious employees may decide to purposefully disclose patient information. Since employees and contractors may have knowledge of your network setup, vulnerabilities, and access codes, snooping employees with malicious intent hold the key to exposing your organization to a series of unwanted risks and threats.

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?
