HIPAA and the Meaningful Use incentive program requires security and privacy risk analysis be performed on a routine basis and recommends they be made a part of a 'Culture of Compliance' which defines the organization's compliance program. Both the Security Risk Analysis (SRA) and Privacy Risk Analysis (PRA) are detailed and complex undertakings. But there are methodologies, frameworks and other tools available in the marketplace to assist in performing these analyses. This presentation will provide a relatively simple methodology and strategies for performing and documenting these crucial tasks. The presentation will also illustrate that organizational liability for HIPAA, as well as other enforcement agencies will be impacted by performing these analyses as proscribed.
