According to the Open Security Foundation’s DataLossDB, which tracks the loss, theft, or exposure of personally identifiable information, out of the 1,520 total incidents reported last year, 327 occurred in the medical industry, making it the most widely breached industry in the United States.  Recently, Healthcare was listed as one of China’s priorities in its 15-year science and technology development strategy for 2006 to 2020, which led to a surge in campaigns against Healthcare firms.

HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) Southern California has partnered with the Los Angeles Information Systems Security Association to present The Healthcare HITECH Privacy and Security Summit, Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Universal City Hilton.

The Summit provides an excellent opportunity to learn how your peers are handling important privacy and security issues arising from HITECH, such as data breaches, compliance, and mobile device security.
