The year of the healthcare hack begins anew as ransomware, cyber threats, and security incidents continue. Healthcare leaders must not only understand the threats but be able to look beyond current practices to protect our information assets.
Information governance (IG) is an organization-wide framework that advances privacy and security practices to create enterprise-wide standards, policies, and practices for creation, access, use, disclosure, storage, and auditing of information. Information governance, a subset of corporate governance, has become a critical organizational competency that healthcare organizations need to embrace in order to find creative ways to thrive in the environment of transformational change in healthcare today.
This presentation will cover leading practices for not only HIPAA privacy and security but also information governance programs for social media management, email management, insider threats, breach response and mobile device management.
