A risk assessment is the first step for any organization to take in developing their plan to protect their health card data and systems

It is a thorough analysis and categorization of the organization’s data, computer software, hardware, physical location, and employee access and responsibilities. In a detailed step by step process, each of these areas is catalogued, and then potential vulnerabilities are identified, along with the impact of that vulnerability and its likelihood of happening. 

Costs of the vulnerability, as well as potential costs to remediate against that vulnerability must also be determined. Given this information, the organization can then make good decisions on what type of a security program is necessary, how does it fit within the organization’s budget,capabilities and strategic plan, and what the next steps are. 

Why should you Attend: How do you know your entity is protected against security threats, computer viruses, data breaches, and shutdowns? Where do you even start? The risk assessment is the basis for all of your security plans, procedures and policies. Without such an assessment, you do not know what data and systems are at risk, what you currently have in place, and where you may be vulnerable. 

You may not even know where to start. And, you are at risk of HIPAA violations and losing CMS funding for your Electronic Health Record activities. Any entity who has not done risk assessments on a regular basis (at least once a year) has an issue and should be listening to this webinar
