Episode Synopsis

Did you know Health and Human Services requires an annual security risk analysis? If a breach of information occurs, OCR will request the last 2-3 years of security risk analyses to verify your organization has performed the analysis and taken steps to implement the remediation plan.

Aside from the requirement, performing a security risk analysis also safeguards electronic protected health information (ePHI) by identifying potential vulnerabilities before a criminal exploits them.
