Slide notes:This slide shows the first part of the list of administrative safeguards from the Security 101 document. Perhaps the most important of the required standards is a security management process that includes an analysis of risk, how risk is managed, and any sanction policy. Procedures for addressing security violations as well as an overall information system activity review are also needed. Additionally, security responsibility must be assigned, usually to the chief security officer. The role of the chief security officer includes providing administrative management within the organization as well as providing technical expertise. The security for the rest of the workforce is addressable, as are aspects of information access management with the exception of the requirement that health care clearinghouse functions must be isolated for analysis with regard to security issues. 7
