The HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) will be producing a pre-recorded webinar for HIPAA covered entities and business associates (collectively, “regulated entities”) discussing how the Security Rule can help regulated entities defend against cyber-attacks. The webinar will discuss real world cyber-attack trends from OCR breach reports and investigations and explore how implementation of appropriate HIPAA Security Rule safeguards can help detect and mitigate common cyber-attacks.
OCR welcomes questions that could be addressed during the webinar. If you have questions about Security Rule safeguards and defending against cyber-attacks, please send them to [email protected] no later than September 25, 2023.
