NY-9DDS-WEBINAR: "HIPAA Security and Risk Assessment in 2022"

Speaker:  Jonathan Gibney - Southridge Technologies

Synopsis:  Ransomware attacks continue to rise, and your data is at risk. And it’s not just large organizations that are targets. Small to medium-sized businesses now account for over 80% of these attacks. Industry experts say that it’s not a matter of IF you will be attacked but rather WHEN. Are you doing everything you can to protect your practice and data? What about your staff? These attackers are always finding new ways in. Even if you think you are fully protected, we encourage you to join us to learn what vulnerabilities might be leaving you at risk and how to address them.

Learning Objectives
• How does HIPAA Security affect your response to the new ransomware attacks
• Learn what you can do to mitigate the risk and limit the impact on your practice
• Review a complete walk-through of a ransomware attack, including remediation
• Understand the importance of data encryption
• Understand the total financial impact of an attack on your business
