Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Is your practice prepared for a data breach?

The Wisconsin Medical Society’s popular Medical Records and the Law (MRL) webinar series continues December 4 at 2 p.m. with “Data Breaches and Security Incidents: Effective Preparation and Incident Response.”

For physician practices and hospitals, health information is everywhere. And unfortunately, it can be a target for hackers and disgruntled employees alike. During this hour-long webinar, Meghan O’Connor, a partner with Quarles & Brady LLP, will help you understand your practice’s obligations under HIPAA and Wisconsin law in responding to an incident. She also will address best practices for incident prevention and response, including:

  • How you can help make data security an organizational priority.
  • Tips for effective data breach preparation.
  • How you can respond to a data breach, from preparation to discovery and remediation.
