Your data is critical, especially if you store or handle patient or financial data on your network. There is a lot more liability involved with accessing and handling private information and data than there ever was before. No matter which regulation your business may fall under (HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc.), how your technology works and is operating is a large part of meeting the requirements and staying in compliance.
Come join us at this free, informative seminar, presented by Lumbermens Insurance and Weston Technology Solutions, where we will discuss and provide solutions for some of the most common risks and liabilities in regulated industries and talk about the ways technology can help protect yourself, your clients and your business. One random attendee will receive HIPAA training for their staff or a complimentary network assessment. Coffee and pastries will be provided.
