FairWarning Executive Series Webinar
The Election’s Impact on HIPAA, Cybersecurity
and Cloud for Healthcare and Life Sciences
For many across the nation, the election of Donald Trump was a surprise. But that doesn’t mean that your healthcare organization must be blindsided by the election’s results. View this webinar to find out about the changes that will likely result from this election, and how to prepare for them.
2017 Elections Impact on Healthcare
It’s a phrase you hear quite frequently: Elections have consequences. Indeed, elections do have consequences. And for healthcare organizations, the most recent presidential election is likely to be very consequential.
Both supporters and detractors of the new president will likely agree: As the first non-politician elected in generations, Donald Trump may be the most unpredictable president to hold the office in modern times.
But what will that mean for your healthcare organization?
Fresh from a visit with many of Washington D.C.’s movers and shakers—including time spent at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and the HHS Office for Civil Rights—FairWarning CEO Kurt Long reports on the post-election vibe among key governmental officers.
Kurt also discusses the escalating security threats to healthcare. As most everyone knows, cybersecurity threats have intensified in recent years. Since 2014, the FBI has reported that the healthcare industry is the most frequently targeted by cybercriminals—and the slowest to respond with defensive measures.
Additionally, Kurt discusses the need to raise the bar in protecting your organization, the accelerating importance of audit logs, and what to expect for OCR HIPAA audits in 2017.
Guest Speaker – Michelle De Mooy, Acting Director of the Privacy and Data Project Center for Democracy & Technology
As the Acting Director of the Privacy and Data Project Center for Democracy & Technology, Michelle De Mooy is uniquely positioned to interpret and anticipate governmental direction. In this webinar, Michelle shares her insights into the probably immediate and longer-term implications of this election.
Specifically, Michelle shares her perspectives about how the election of President Trump is likely to impact:
Governmental intervention in the healthcare industry
The degree of governmental focus upon cybersecurity concerns relative to healthcare
Commercial innovations in healthcare technologies (including IoT, artificial intelligence, and the deployment of advanced technologies for the management of specific diseases)
HIPAA-focused legislation, both near-term and long-term
Healthcare-related regulatory changes, and the upheaval and confusion that may result from the current political climate
Lobbying goals for healthcare organizations—and the likely results
Changes in state-mandated privacy regulations
And—the elephant in the room—what will happen if the Affordable Care Act is repealed in part or in full? Michelle and Kurt both share their thoughts.
For many across the nation, the election of Donald Trump was a surprise. But that doesn’t mean that your healthcare organization must be blindsided by the election’s results.
