The State of HIPAA Privacy and Security with Mac McMillan

Late last year HIPAA Omnibus went into effect and changed the world of HIPAA as we know it. The consequences of a HIPAA violation for both covered entities and now business associates has gotten more severe and HIPAA audits are becoming a real reality for many healthcare organizations.

I had a chance to sit down with Mac McMillan, co-founder of Cynergistek, to talk about the state of HIPAA privacy and security. We cover a broad range of HIPAA related topics including what an organization should do to make sure they’re HIPAA compliant and ready for any future HIPAA audits. Every organization in healthcare can benefit from watching this interview with Mac McMillan.

Virginia Tech IDEA Group Examines Cybersecurity Research

An alumni group with ties to military and intelligence assesses high-tech cybersecurity research at Virginia Tech.  This is becoming an increasingly important topic in healthcare IT because of the sensitive nature of the information involved.

One of the things that has held back some companies, and probably to a larger extent healthcare providers themselves, is the uncertainty of how secure healthcare IT products, such as EMR/EHR, really are.  There will always be some danger involved because for every good guy working to keep our information safe there is at least one other guy working to try and steal it.  That being said,  I feel incredibly safe with the security that already exists, but I am also glad that there is continued work to make it all safer.
