HIPAA Hot Spots: Dom Nicastro and Adam Greene discuss the issues that OCR has identified as "hot spots" that deserve special focus by covered entities:

  1. Incident detection and response

  2. Review of access logs

  3. Wireless network security

  4. Password and user access management

  5. Loss or theft of mobile devices

  6. Up-to-date software

  7. Role-based access and other access management

All of these are things that every covered entity should have addressed in their policies and procedures. And now that you know OCR is concerned about these, they should get special attention.
