OCR Releases Cybersecurity Video: How the HIPAA Security Rule Can Help Defend Against Cyber-Attacks

October is cybersecurity awareness month. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR), the enforcer of the HIPAA Rules, has released a cybersecurity video: How the HIPAA Security Rule Can Help Defend Against Cyber-Attacks. This supports their previously identified goal to prioritize healthcare cybersecurity over the next two years.

In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, OCR has produced a new video this October for organizations covered under the HIPAA Rules on how the HIPAA Security Rule can help regulated entities defend against cyber-attacks. The video is available in English and Spanish.

This presentation is intended to educate the health care industry on real world cyber-attack trends from OCR breach reports and investigations and explore how implementation of appropriate HIPAA Security Rule safeguards can help detect and mitigate common cyber-attacks. Topics include:

  • OCR breach and investigation trend analysis
  • Common attack vectors
  • OCR investigations of weaknesses that led to or contributed to breaches
  • How Security Rule compliance can help regulated entities defend against cyber-attacks
