WEBINAR: What Is GDPR? Why Should Healthcare Organizations Pay Attention?
Presented on Thursday, May 10th, 2018
Presented by Brian Selfridge, Meditology IT Risk Management Partner
What is GDPR and what does it mean for healthcare? On May 25, 2018, the European Commission regulatory agency will mandate that businesses operating within the European Union countries must comply with the newly revised General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). US-based healthcare entities need to know about GDPR requirements and the implications for the health industry as well as impacts to Business Associates, which work across industries and which often have EU-based operations.
Join this webinar to gain a better understanding of GDPR requirements and the impact on the following issues:
• US-based firms (including healthcare, health plans and business associates servicing health care) must determine if their organization is required to meet the new GDPR compliance requirements.
• Impacts to U.S. health organizations can include additional controls around Consent, Privacy Notices and Breach Notification; appointment of a Data Protection Officer; communication to clients on Rights to Access; and permissions around Cross-Border Data Transfer.
• An analysis of data security frameworks, such as HITRUST and Privacy Shield, are discussed; specifically, around how these certifications line up with GDPR requirements
