B.Y.O.D. in a Healthcare Setting - Risks, Policies and Procedures, Access Controls and More
Thursday, October 31, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT)
This webinar will discuss the best practices for protecting the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) when clinicians, other healthcare personnel and patients use their own devices to access PHI.
Why Should You Attend:
The push is growing to allow clinicians, other workforce members and patients to use their own devices to access PHI. It’s convenient, uses 4G for speedy transmission and works anywhere there is a wireless network. Good idea, right? Not necessarily.
- Do you have written B.Y.O.D. policies and procedures, or access controls, or VPNs with proper security?
- Do these devices store any PHI? Is their data encrypted either at rest or during transmission?
- What happens if an identity thief takes the device or the workforce member loses it in a public place?
- Are you prepared for the brain damage and enormous expense of a breach investigation and/or breach notification?
This 90-minute webinar will discuss the current technology, the challenges and best practices for protecting the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) when clinician, staff or patient, demand for B.Y.O.D. is growing.

- B.Y.O.D risks
