HIPAA Security compliance section 164.308(a)(5) defines periodic security reminder as an addressable action. How do you maintain information security awareness for your employees?
I just read a press release about a company in Orem, UT that produced a sequence of 60-second videos outlining best practices for healthcare practices to comply with technical HIPAA requirements. What a great idea!
While there are many approaches you can take to maintain security awareness– email alerts, scheduled online training, posters, screen savers, lunch and learns, etc. – one cool way is to email 60 second YouTube video snippets to your employees on a regular basis. Assuming your end point devices are multimedia enabled, these entertaining snippets cover key elements in an overall HIPAA Security Compliance plan of action.
