Often in life a situation comes along where you say to yourself, “I didn’t expect that!”.  The reason that happens is because you never really thought about that particular happening.  When it comes to HIPAA and security, you DO NOT want to have that conversation with yourself, especially when you can learn all about it right here.  Once you learn the information, you will know what you may expect and you will be prepared for it.
