FairWarning Launches Training Initiative to Raise Industry Bar on Privacy and Security Expertise to Meet Increased Regulatory Compliance and Cybersecurity Risks

CLEARWATER, Fla. – July 13, 2017 – FairWarning® announced today that FairWarning Ready Certification is now available online for its customers.  To date, over 400 professionals around the world currently hold a FairWarning Ready Certification through attendance of on-site training at FairWarning’s corporate headquarters in Clearwater, Florida.  Today’s announcement provides customers with an affordable and convenient path for expanding their depth and breadth of privacy and security expertise.  Further, FairWarning is announcing the availability of a Master-Level certification course available in the first-quarter of 2018.

The level of expertise required to operate successful healthcare privacy, security and compliance programs has dramatically escalated while expertise shortages have made it more difficult and expensive than ever to attract and retain talent. Today’s announcements give care providers more options in building expertise within their staff. In recent years, global regulations including HIPAA have expanded vastly, and added detailed governance requirements to meet compliance obligations. In parallel, cybersecurity threats have dramatically increased with criminal and political adversaries successfully targeting patient information resulting in breaches, service outages and even compromised trust of the healthcare industry. For care providers, electronic health records and clinical applications hold vast amounts of protected health information. Keeping this information secure and private remains a core challenge.

“Raising the bar of the privacy, security and regulatory compliance expertise is an all-of-the-above approach for our customers. Managed Privacy Services has provided an excellent option for a growing number of our customers, and we want to provide another clear path for all customers through training to reach a world-class level of privacy and compliance expertise.  This is not a one size fits all challenge, and today’s announcements give our customers options,” said Kurt Long, CEO and Founder of FairWarning®.

Today’s announcement includes:

  • Immediate availability of FairWarning Ready Online training
  • Attendance pre-requisites designed to help care providers to build higher levels of expertise and depth into their personnel
  • Master- level FairWarning training available Q1 2018
  • Advanced pre-requisites enabling care providers, designed to help build the highest level of expertise with their staff
  • Enterprise training packages for large customers available
  • Customer-only webinar on the program to be conducted on July 13th, 2017
