Ways to Limit Your HIPAA Vulnerability and Liability - Webinar by MentorHealth
Virtual (Webinar)
Aug 28, 2014
Although there are many presentations, courses and services now available to help health care organizations to become HIPAA-compliant, the real issue for the health care organization is to determine the most cost-effective ways to understand their risks and to minimize the vulnerability to a breach and their liability when a breach does occur. This presentation focuses on understanding the responsibilities of the health care organization, the liabilities resulting from those responsibilities and the penalties that can be assessed as a result of a breach of patient-protected health information.

Cyber-Seniors Screening
Yahoo!, 110 5th Street, San Francisco, CA
Sep 10, 2014

Join the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) in San Francisco for a screening of "Cyber-Seniors - Connecting Generations," a touching and often humorous documentary that chronicles a group of senior citizens as they learn how to become more connected online through the assistance of teenage mentors. 

"Cyber-Seniors" draws attention to the vast knowledge gap that exists between senior citizens and youth when it comes to the use of technology and also serves as a wonderful example of the great things that can happen when we make the effort to help connect the under-connected members of our communities.

Following the the screening, FOSI's CEO, Stephen Balkam, will hold a Q&A with the film's producer, Brenda Rusnak.
