2014 was labeled as the “Year of the Breach.” But those that received all the publicity were attacks directed at the major retailers or media companies. As noted in a Washington Post article, this year “2015 is already the year of the health-care hack – and it’s only going to get worse.”1

With a host of regulations now being enforced, including HIPAA and HITECH, a data breach can have substantial legal and financial consequences.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. On May 11th, join Stephen Treglia, Legal Counsel at Absolute Software and former Assistant DA, Chief of the Technology Crime Unit in New York, for an in-depth look at:

  • Evolution of and future outlook of healthcare privacy regulation
  • Techniques to implement pre-emptive mobile data security
  • Risk response measures to avoid significant security incidents
  • Securing Healthcare devices throughout their lifecycle
