HIPAA 2015 - Safeguarding Health Information: Building Assurance through HIPAA Security

NIST and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office for Civil Rights (OCR) are pleased to co-host the 8th annual conference, Safeguarding Health Information: Building Assurance through HIPAA Security, on September 2-3, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt, Washington, D.C.

The conference will explore the current health information technology security landscape and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. This event will highlight the present state of health information security, and practical strategies, tips and techniques for implementing the HIPAA Security Rule. The Security Rule sets federal standards to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic protected health information by requiring HIPAA covered entities and their business associates to implement and maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards.

The conference will offer sessions exploring security management and technical assurance of electronic health information. Presentations will cover a variety of current topics including updates on the Omnibus HIPAA/HITECH Final Rule, breach management, business associate liability, managing 3rd party risk, securing medical devices, and more.
