Evolving Information Security Demands in HealthCare – SOC 2® + HITRUST

Tuesday August 23, 2016 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
From Healthcare & Life Sciences Institute

KPMG Healthcare & Life Sciences Institute

Event Overview

As healthcare organizations become increasingly reliant on third parties to manage, analyze, and process protected health information (PHI), they must hold business associates to the same standards they hold themselves.  Since organizations are more frequently being asked to provide SOC 2® reports and HITRUST certification in order to continue critical business relationships, companies need to understand their options and current / future commitments made to their business partners.

Join our Webcast to learn how your organization can prepare for attestation engagements involving readiness assessments, remediation tracking, roadmap planning, etc. This is critical information for directors, managers, and other business, risk, internal audit, and operations professionals at provider organizations, payers and business associates (including non-healthcare companies).  

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of:

  • How to respond to the industry drivers and demands for attestation reporting
  • HITRUST and how to use its framework to synthesize standards and regulations, including federal (HIPAA, HITECH), third party (PCI, COBIT) and government (NIST, FTC)
  • A jumpstart on planning for the Journey to Compliance and leveraging controls across multiple initiatives and attestation reports to gain efficiencies
Featured speakers will be HITRUST’s Chief Compliance Officer, Ken Vander Wal and KPMG LLP healthcare security professionals Michael Ebert, Partner; Emily Frolick, Partner; Mathew Sadler, Director; and Thomas Humbert, Director. The Webcast will last approximately 60 minutes, including a question-and-answer session.
