The State of HIPAA Privacy and Security with Mac McMillan

Late last year HIPAA Omnibus went into effect and changed the world of HIPAA as we know it. The consequences of a HIPAA violation for both covered entities and now business associates has gotten more severe and HIPAA audits are becoming a real reality for many healthcare organizations.

I had a chance to sit down with Mac McMillan, co-founder of Cynergistek, to talk about the state of HIPAA privacy and security. We cover a broad range of HIPAA related topics including what an organization should do to make sure they’re HIPAA compliant and ready for any future HIPAA audits. Every organization in healthcare can benefit from watching this interview with Mac McMillan.
