The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) is presenting a webinar on Wednesday, September 18th: "HIPAA Compliance: What it is, what it means, and what to do about it." Set for 10am PST / 1pm EST, the session is free to existing ILTA members (visit iltanet.org to see if you qualify) and for a small fee for non-members.

Session Details:
The Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was recently amended to impose a number of privacy and security requirements directly on law firms which handle certain types of health information. Failure to comply with the HIPAA requirements by the September 23, 2013 enforcement deadline may lead to a variety of regulatory penalties including mandatory compliance reviews or multi-million dollar fines. 

This presentation provides law firm personnel with a review of the recent changes and a brief overview of the HIPAA requirements. Some HIPAA compliance challenges unique to the legal environment will be discussed and advice for building an effective compliance program will be provided.

Speaker:
Adam Carlson (M.S.,CISM) is a security solutions consultant at Intapp, where he focuses on helping law firms achieve their information security and privacy objectives. He has over 12 years of experience in IT operations and security management.
