A newly appointed HIPAA Security Officer working for a West Coast municipality attended one of our virtual sessions. Already a certified information security professional, the attendee explained she wanted to ensure she was properly informed and prepared to assume her new role. Our Senior Instructor spoke with her to gain insight into her experience with healthcare, compliance and security, and then began the class. Over the course of the week’s class, several discussions occurred over various points she wanted clarification on, including how HIPAA and PCI connected, how HIPAA applied to a Municipality and its First Responder workforce and other points unique to her environment. Our Senior Instructor was able to provide much insight and information for her on these points from his own long and varied work experience in this area, supplemented with additional research, and the student shared that her expectations were well exceeded.
