Just a reminder of the FREE upcoming data security compliance workshop - Space is limited, so register today at http://tinyurl.com/35pk3yr!
On July 13, Mintz Levin will be joined by Sophos, Six Weight Consulting, and MFA Cornerstone Consulting to hold a free compliance workshop focused on both the gaps and overlap of Massachusetts’ data protection regulation 201 CMR 17.oo and the recent updates to federal health and medical data privacy found in the HITECH Act. We'll have an interactive hands-on workshop that will help you to address some critical questions within your organization:
What are my organization and business partner’s obligations?
What kind of information do I need to protect and how do identify it?
Is data encryption necessary?
What is a WISP?
What is a data breach and what is my responsibility and liability if I have one?
Cynthia Larose is a member in Mintz Levin's Corporate Group and leads our Privacy and Security practice. She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional, working with clients in various industries to develop comprehensive information security programs on the front end, and providing timely counsel when it becomes necessary to respond to a data breach.
