OCR has kept busy over the last year as analysis of OCR’s 2018 activity by Beazley’s in-house breach response team, Beazley Breach Response (BBR) Services, has revealed.
In the latest Beazley Breach Insights, BBR Services highlights:
Katherine Keefe, head of BBR Services at Beazley, said: “Post-breach enforcement by OCR makes it imperative for healthcare organizations to ensure their security risk analyses and risk mitigation plans are reviewed regularly and updated. As well as issuing larger fines for major breaches, OCR is investigating smaller scale data breaches than previously. BBR Services strongly recommends that healthcare organizations of all sizes review their cyber security policies, practices and employee training programs and engage their insurer or broker in building a robust HIPAA–compliant risk management program.”
