On August 10, 2011, several members of Baker Hostetler’s Healthcare Industry and Privacy, Security and Social Media Teams hosted a webinar entitled “Are You Ready for a Data Breach?” The program focused on the complex and rapidly changing HIPAA/HITECH regulations and compliance issues facing healthcare institutions.

The program also discussed the multimillion-dollar penalties that recently have been assessed against healthcare institutions, and the exponential increase in the use of mobile technology within the healthcare industry.

The webinar centered on assisting in-house counsel, compliance, risk management and IT officers with forming a stronger response to a data breach incident. The discussion also offered timely practical tips and processes that can help covered entities and business associates prevent a data breach from initially occurring.

Baker Hostetler data breach attorneys Jerry Ferguson, Lynn Sessions, John Mulhollan and Craig Hoffman led the session.
