L. 104-191 (Aug. 21, 1996). Another law, which is also relevant to healthcare industry participants, the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, Pub. L. 114-113 (Dec. 18, 2015) (“CSA”) leveraged the insights from both the private and the government stakeholders through the Healthcare and Public Health (“HPH”) Sector Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Public-Private Partnership. Section 405(d), Aligning Health Care Industry Security Approaches, required the United States Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) to convene a Task Group.1

The purpose of this webinar is to give participants an appreciation of the Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices: Managing Threats and Protecting Patients (“HICP”) in relation to HIPAA compliance.
