Compliance with HIPAA and its regulations has never been more important. Fifty states have enacted data breach laws of their own, which are often triggered when a HIPAA data breach occurs. Covered Entities and Business Associates are challenged to respond to Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and State Attorney(s) General inquiries. The HITECH Act gave State Attorneys General the ability to bring a civil action to enjoin violations of HIPAA and to obtain damages for the residents of their state, and to recoup attorneys’ fees.
Hear from current and former employees of State Attorneys General offices concerning how privacy and security investigations are conducted, their enforcement authority, and how they coordinate with each other and with OCR.
This session is offered as a 75-minute webinar using the Zoom webinar platform. The open format encourages questions during and after the session.
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
- How State Attorneys General enforce information privacy and security requirements
- State Attorneys General and HIPAA enforcement authority
