October is CyberSecurity Privacy Awareness Month! Information Managers is celebrating by hosting our annual 15 Day Privacy Challenge. The 15 Day Privacy Challenge is a fun, no cost educational opportunity on privacy and security.
Privacy Challenge #2
Our patients and clients depend on us to keep their personal information private and confidential. And no matter your role in your organization, you have a part to play in keeping that information safe. So, does everyone in your office understand how privacy and confidentiality impact their roles? Organizations need to provide clear direction to all employees (not just those who handle confidential information regularly) regarding the collection and safe-keeping of this important data.
Everyone should demonstrate – on paper and in action – the following:
- We respect the personal information you share with us
- We will collect only the information necessary to do our jobs to provide services to you
- We will keep it confidential
- We will use it only for the purpose for which it was collected
- We will disclose your personal information only with your permission
Does your healthcare practice have an oath of confidentiality? Do all staff – administration, support, maintenance, and professional – sign the oath?
Do you want to enjoy the benefits of the internet without the fear of cyber attacks and privacy breaches?
Join us for the Free 15 Day Privacy Challenge for more tips, tools, and templates that you can use right away!
We are proud to be a Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month #CyberAware.
