The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information

Source: American National Standards Institute

From the publication web page:

The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security explores the reputational, financial, legal, operational, and clinical repercussions of a protected health information (PHI) breach on an organization, and provides a 5-step method – PHI Value Estimator (PHIve) – to assess specific security risks and build a business case for enhanced PHI security. This tool estimates the overall potential costs of a data breach to an organization, and provides a methodology for determining an appropriate level of investment needed to strengthen privacy and security programs and reduce the probability of a breach. A detailed example of costing a PHI breach using the PHIve method is provided.

The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security also offers information about:

  • the stakeholders involved in the health care ecosystem;
  • the evolution of laws, rules and regulations designed to protect PHI;
  • the causes and increasing number of data breaches;
  • the most common threats and vulnerabilities to the security of PHI;
  • safeguards and controls that organizations can put in place to mitigate the risk of a breach; and
  • current industry practices and attitudes for protecting PHI, based on a survey.

    Tuesday, 19th August 2014

    Organisations face growing legal and reputational risks associated with doing business. These risks have become even more significant because of mounting pressure from regulators and an increase in business carried out in higher risk jurisdictions. Increasingly complex business regulations such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act ensure that companies thoroughly examine third-party relationships to tackle the risk of money laundering, bribery and corruption and sanctions regimes.
