Presenter: Carl Cadregari, CISA
Executive Vice President

No one wants to go through the pain of an audit, so it’s critically important to understand why audits happen and how to be ready for the possibility, so your organization can respond quickly and appropriately if the need arises. In Part 1 of this course, Carl Cadregari presents an overview of HIPAA, Security, and HiTech rules as well as issues related to compliance with these regulations. In Part 2, he specifically addresses audits: why they occur and what you can do to be ready for them. The “Top Five Areas to Be Aware of” explains what to expect if you are audited and how best to respond. The “Top Ten Items to Do” section explains in detail how to be prepared for the possibility of an audit, and what action items your organization should check off its list to assure that you are in compliance with all security and privacy regulations in order to avoid security breaches and the ensuing fines.
