New York Area Health Systems Invest in Automated Privacy Auditing

Weill Cornell Medical College to deploy FairWarning privacy breach detection software to enhance existing privacy auditing and security information management processes.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.– December 2, 2008 – FairWarning, Inc., the world’s leading supplier of cross- platform healthcare privacy breach detection solutions, today announced they have been selected by Weill Cornell Medical College to further automate patient privacy auditing.

“Weill Cornell Medical College has deployed security information management tools to address important elements of privacy and security for our patient’s data. By adding FairWarning® to our environment, we are addressing essential privacy auditing needs and adding a degree of sophistication that advances our culture of privacy and compliance,” said Ben Nathan, Associate Director of Security and Identity Management, Weill Cornell Medical College.

Creating a culture of privacy, security and compliance is a rising priority for healthcare organizations as the Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG) conducted unannounced HIPAA audits during 2007 and 2008. Additionally, FTC Identity Theft Red Flag rules were expanded to include healthcare providers. Industry insiders believe that the incoming federal administration sees healthcare privacy as a cornerstone to furthering the deployment of electronic health records.

“The strongest and most vigilant health systems in the New York area are taking patient privacy and compliance very seriously by furthering investment in their privacy auditing processes,” said Kurt Long Chief Executive Officer of FairWarning, Inc., “FairWarning® is privileged to be working with forward moving organizations like Weill Cornell Medical College on their privacy and compliance initiatives.”
