The Office for Civil Rights requires HIPAA-covered entities to conduct and document a Security Risk Assessment. This program is a strategic introduction for clinical staff and administrators about the assessment process of the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of protected health information under their control. Performing this risk assessment is an important exercise which typically involves administrators, clinicians, IT/security specialists, and legal consultants. A template for an ambulatory practice risk assessment will be used as a road map.

  • Review the elements and process of a HIPAA Security Risk Assessment.
  • Understand what is meant by the terms threat, vulnerability, risk, impact, and mitigation.
  • Know what goes into an inventory of an organization’s exposures and safeguards, and how to prioritize cyber risk management activities.
