Privacy & Security

The HIMSS Privacy and Security Committee goal: "By 2014, all entities who use, send, or store health information meet requirements for confidentiality, integrity, availability and accountability based on sound risk management practices, using recognized standards and protocols."

HIMSS has launched several work groups that are actively involved with industry changing activities to achieve this goal.

HIMSS is proud to announce its collaboration with the SANS Institute
As part of a collaboration between HIMSS and the SANS Institute, HIMSS will host a complimentary webinar on "Practical Steps for Assessing Tablet and Mobile Device Security" to demonstrate SANS' expertise in security training.
