As HIPAA Omnibus Rule Takes Effect, Organizations Turn to Gazzang to Secure Protected Health Information and RISC Management and Consulting!

Virtualization Journal mentions a Quote by Chris Heuman, Practice Leader at RISC “Data breaches such as the one experienced by AdvocateHealth Group affecting more than four million patients, and the subsequent huge class action lawsuit need not occur. A thorough risk analysis, as required by HIPAA, and implementation of stable, supportable encryption technology could have saved the organization a great deal of cost and time, and more than four million patients a lot of stress,” said Chris Heuman, Practice Leader at RISC Management.
