Protecting a business from record breaches resulting from ransomware attacks

When HIPAA investigations relating to ransomware breaches find malpractices; it can be total jolt that can absolutely devastate the said practice or business. Discovery of this kind of breach during a HIPAA investigation can cause a major financial burden, apart of course, from severe embarrassment and ignominy.

This means that practices and businesses that are subject to a HIPAA investigation need to get a thorough understanding of whether their systems are at risk for ransomware or other very dangerous breaches, and of ways of dealing with them. The severity of a ransomware breach should never be underestimated, as it is the #1 risk for massive breach in the United States.

What needs to be done?

If a practice or business needs to insulate itself from appropriating of its electronic records, both foreign and domestic, it needs to take a few very important steps. What are these steps, and how does a practice or business do it? These constitute the learning a webinar from MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will be organizing.

Brian L Tuttle, who is a Certified Professional in Health IT (CPHIT), Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP) and Certified Business Resilience Auditor (CBRA) with over 15 years' experience in Health IT and Compliance Consulting, will be the speaker at this webinar. To gain the benefit of this learning, register by just logging on to

Brian will explain the practical and proven ways by which practices and businesses that are subject to HIPAA investigations can protect themselves from ransomware attacks and breaches.

Understanding the risk factors

He will also explain what the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI are, and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures. Brian will be quoting real life examples and will share his vast experience of dealing with situations that could cause a business or practice to go haywire.

Brian will offer specific information about multiple incidents, which will help practices and businesses understand what they did wrong that led to a bad situation. In addition to an explanation of the variables that need to be considered; he will also discuss specific questions the Office of Civil Rights investigators and FBI are likely ask and how best to answer. In all, this is a very valuable session at which the speaker will educate participants on the ways of preventing a breach altogether.

Brian will cover the following areas at this webinar:

  • What is ransomware?
  • What are risk factors?
  • What to do if hijacked
