Vormetric Webinar to Address HITECH Act Data Security and Compliance Challenges

Vormetric:

What:

 

In the upcoming October 21st Webinar “The Impact of the HITECH Act on HIPAA Compliance and Data Security: Clear Information Direct from the Legal Experts," Vormetric will be hosting a presentation with data security and HIPAA privacy legal experts from Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP to help businesses gain clear information on security and privacy impacts of the HITECH Act.

 
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act has rapidly changed the way that healthcare payers, providers and their business partners need to approach data security. With data breach notification requirements for unprotected data already in effect, organizations need to obtain credible information on how this law affects their business data and compliance programs. A significant measure in the HITECH Act requires healthcare businesses to use encryption or destruction measures to prevent disclosure of protected health information (PHI), and a duty to notify via media channels, if this requirement is not satisfied.
 

Topics to be covered include:

Explanation of the HITECH Act Data Breach Notification and Safe Harbor Requirements

How the HITECH Act impacts your HIPAA compliance program

What business partners need to know about HIPAA security and privacy compliance

Encryption requirements for safe harbor

FTC requirements for data breach notification
 

When:

October 21, 2009 at
11:00 am PST / 2:00 p.m. EST

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
