GCC HIMSS Webinar: Navigating the Increasing Risks to Mobile Device Data Security

February 23, 12:00pm, CST - 1:00pm, CST


Non-member Price: 

The brief history of the existence of mobile devices has demonstrated that they deserve the title of the most vulnerable digital device. Easily the victim of intrusion, loss or theft, it is far more likely that critical data can fall into the hands of the wrong person from a mobile device than from any other form of storage.

Beyond the loss of brand reputation for a company that manages sensitive data so cavalierly, there are numerous other consequences when control of such precious data is mishandled. Some of the most damaging hits to a company’s bottom line can come in the way of victim class action lawsuits, shareholder class action lawsuits, the FTC’s mandatorily-imposed 20 year remediation plan. And, most importantly, the miscreant company risks facing government regulatory sanctions.

Join Stephen Treglia, JD, HCISPP, and Douglas Lubahn, HCISPP, as they analyze some of the most devastating recent data breaches, highlight where the legal and regulatory dangers may be hiding in HIPAA/HITECH, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, FTC, state breach notification laws and even pending legislation such as the EU’s Data Protection Legislation, and discuss best practices to minimize the risk of critical data loss.

Event Objectives:

In this webcast you will learn:

  • Analysis of the recent incident increase and costly consequences of mobile device data breaches
  • Analysis of how and why laws and regulations have evolved so rapidly in assigning penalties to these breaches, along with foreseeable predictions of where these laws and regulations are heading.

  • Recommendations to minimize the risk and cost of such breaches.
