  • HIPAA/HITECH Statutes: Breach notifications rules and other pertinent information related to the loss or theft of personal health information.
  • Resources: Links to credit agencies and credit monitoring services as well as the FTC website. Also, a section on COPPA – the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act – and relevant information surrounding the mining of data on minors.
