Lumension Sponsored Webinar Discusses Ways to Protect Patient Data and Comply with HIPAA Security Mandates
Date:8/12/2009

Lumension to present alongside United Health Care System on how to protect electronic medical records by enforcing device control and data encryption policies

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 13, 2009 -- In an increasingly online health care environment where patient's medical records are shared among many medical professionals including doctors, insurance companies, healthcare facilities and others, the risk of improper electronic protected health information (EPHI) disclosure is on the rise and at an all time high. According to Forrester, 52% of companies surveyed have suffered data loss via a USB thumb drive or other removable media devices. With an urgency to digitize medical records, organizations face new challenges to implement administrative, technical and physical security policies to effectively protect sensitive electronic health information while also addressing HIPAA Security Rule requirements.

In a webinar titled: Medical Records on the Run: Protecting Patient Data with Device Control and Encryption, Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint management and security, outlines how organizations can effectively protect medical records with proper data protection and encryption methodologies such as device control while also helping address HIPAA security compliance mandates. The webinar, to be held on Thursday, August 18, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. PST, features Lumension Director of Solution Marketing Chris Merritt and George Ward, Manager for Information Security and Computer Operations, United Health Care System.

The webinar takes an in-depth look at how the IT team at United Health Care System defined their data protection policy, implemented role-based device control and encryption throughout the entire organization, and how they drove awareness throughout the organization to this policy change. By attending this webinar, attendees will:

 
  • Understand the current threat and regulatory environment for healthcare organizations
  • Discover how to effectively manage and automate technical controls to help address HIPAA Security Rule requirements
  • Learn proven methods to ensure business enablement without risking improper EPHI disclosures
