HIPAA compliance speaking engagement
Two things that have become obvious after all the recent breaches in Medical and Financial world are the lack of awareness about the complex world of regulatory laws , and the upper management’s belief that their Internal IT departments are all they need to keep things compliant. In reality, compliance is a well coordinated legal, administrative, technical, and training system that ensures all stake holders are actively involved in the process. Within the past few years we have seen huge penalties being levied against various types of organizations from small operators to enterprises, and even governmental bodies some with multi-million dollar IT budgets. The world of Cyber Security has become so big that universities have been offering Graduate level programs to provide the business world with well educated professionals to deal with modern security challenges including the barrage of attacks by Cyber criminals to steal data, cripple networks, damage brands, and perform a host of other malicious activities.
Educating the leaders is the first step in enabling businesses and institutions to take a proactive approach to security. OC IT Solutions unifies the components of a complete security program to reduce risks across your enterprise. During our educational sessions we cover the latest network security threats, discuss current trends in vulnerability research and technology, reveal latest initiatives and educate organizations and IT professionals on HIPAA regulatory audits and compliance issues.
