Did You Know?
HIPAA requires you to report all breaches and incidents, including lost or stolen devices, ransomware/malware data breaches, and more!
- Consumer Reports found that 3.1 million mobile devices are stolen each year
- When you report a breach, if you are unable to prove your HIPAA compliance, you can be fined up to $50,000 per incident
- Of the $27 million in fines the OCR levied in 2016, more than half were the result of the theft of mobile devices containing medical data
Your best defense is HIPAA compliance!
