PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
On Dec. 18, 2011, The New York Times ran a story recounting Micky Tripathi’s nightmarish experience dealing with the fallout from his company’s data breach. Tripathi’s nonprofit, the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative, works with doctors and hospitals to help digitize patient records. Earlier in 2011, crooks broke into an employee’s car, stole a laptop and made off with the unencrypted records for some 13,687 individuals. In this session, Tripathi will discuss his ordeal and how his team responded to it (and spent nearly $300,000 doing so). Most importantly, he’ll offer some observations, lessons learned and best practices that will help attendees more effectively secure patient health information.
