Course Description

4–6 Hours / Self-Paced / Online Access –

Security is no joke. Neither is privacy. Particularly when it comes to medical records. People want to trust that their (sometimes sensitive) information is protected—that’s why the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act exists. And that’s why healthcare providers don’t mess around when it comes to data encryption and protection.

This course helps technology specialists understand security protection and prevention relating to data protection strategies / best practices and overall site security.
