You Can't Afford to Not Be Compliant
With escalating global cyber-attacks as seen all over the news and the internet, Department of Health and the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) have put HIPAA Cybersecurity as a top priority. You simply cannot ignore this any longer and believe this will never happen to you. You may also feel you are protected and don’t need to do anything.
Non-compliance leaves you at risk for financial losses, security breaches, license revocations, business disruptions, poor patient care, erosion of trust, and a damaged reputation.
The criminal penalties for HIPAA violations can be severe. The minimum fine for willful violations of HIPAA Rules is $50,000. The maximum criminal penalty for a HIPAA violation by an individual is $250,000. Restitution may also need to be paid to the victims. In addition to the financial penalty, a jail term is likely for a criminal violation of HIPAA Rules.
