HIPAA Crimes Webinar

How the New Crime Wave Affects You




May 17, 2016 12:30PM–1:30PM


Please join Foley Hoag LLP on Tuesday, May 17 for a webinar discussing the ongoing crime sprees involving theft of patients’ identities and health information; ransomware involved in these crimes; related data security issues affecting health care providers; and how they implicate law enforcement and the criminal law aspects of HIPAA. Unfortunately, health care providers are the perfect mark for theft and extortion because they have huge amounts of sensitive information and maintain such information in computer databases at risk of infiltration.

We will examine the laws and regulations surrounding HIPAA; internal and external risks providers face with respect to theft of personal health and identifying information; and potential prevention and response techniques, including how to get the bad guys with the help of law enforcement.
