Course Description

This course is designed to introduce students to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA is a U.S. healthcare law that was first passed in 1996. In this course, we will cover what HIPAA is, why it is important, and the key takeaways your organization needs to know. We will also discuss the HIPAA Security Rule, Privacy Rule, and Titles 1-5. The course will cover basic information about HIPAA violation penalties, including both civil and criminal penalties. Please note that nothing discussed in this course constitutes legal advice. Students will then get a brief overview of malware, including viruses, worms, and Trojans as well as a high-level overview of the HIPAA Breach Notification rule. A sample video on ransomware has been curated to help non-technical students understand the importance of proper security hygiene. We will then move into a review of some real-life stories, where HIPAA was violated, so students can understand various scenarios that could transpire in their organization. The hands-on component of this course will involve students using the SRA (Security Risk Assessment) Tool from HHS.
