Slide notes:What are the required safeguards? They are grouped into three categories: administrative, physical, and technical. Administrative safeguards are policies and procedures that are designed to prevent, detect, and contain security violations. Physical safeguards include protecting facilities, equipment, and media where medical information is stored. Technical safeguards are various technical policies and procedures governing use of and access to PHI. The following slides show some features from each category, though these arent exhaustive. The overview article referenced earlier further enumerates all of these safeguards, as do many other sources of information. Security risk assessment is very similar to the risk analysis presented in Lecture c on the HIPAA Privacy Rule. Oversight and management of both the security and privacy risk assessment ideally should tie into the organizations overall governance and risk management program. 6
