#1 Secuity Priority in Healthcare

"It's becoming increasingly clear that the age of strictly voluntary compliance with respect to HIPAA has come to an end, and the threat of expensive settlements and corrective action plans with federal and state regulators is becoming an increasing reality," - Adam Greene, former official at HHS/OCR (Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights)

"There are various ways to do auditing, but it's important to do smart auditing rather than just a completely random sample. There are certainly tools available to do algorithms that may hone in on potential problem areas." - Adam Greene

"small breaches also are sometimes the much harder ones to catch. When you've got a large breach that's readily apparent much of the time, whereas often times it requires proactive monitoring to find all the small breaches that are going on in the organization, and that's where I think organizations aren't really putting their resources. They're simply unaware of the volume of small breaches that may be happening."- Adam Greene
