On March 5, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) members and stakeholders are invited to attend a press conference and congressional briefing to unveil a new report and method to help organizations operating in the health care industry evaluate the financial impact of breached PHI.
The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security was created through the "PHI Project" - a collaboration of ANSI, via its Identity Theft Prevention and Identity Management Standards Panel (IDSP), in partnership with The Santa Fe Group/Shared Assessments Program Healthcare Working Group, and the Internet Security Alliance (ISA) - and involved a cross-section of more than 100 health care industry leaders from over seventy organizations.
The document provides health care organizations a 5-step method - PHIve (PHI Value Estimator) to assess specific security risks and build a business case for enhanced PHI security. This tool estimates the overall potential costs of a data breach to an organization, and provides a methodology for determining an appropriate level of investment needed to strengthen privacy and security programs and reduce the probability of a breach.
The full document will be available to the general public for free download at webstore.ansi.org/phi on March 5 at 10:00 a.m.
