With all the ransomware attacks going on this week, I wanted to post some information regarding the OCR and ransomware. Feel free to download this ransomware fact sheet.
It has been debated if a ransomware is actually a HIPAA breach or not. Even if it is not, cover your bases. Document, document, document. Donna Grindle from Kardon explains it very well in this outstanding podcast at Help me with HIPAA.com. She goes through some of the things you need to do for a ransomware attack.

Ransomware Fact Sheet
It’s good to review this sheet even if you have not had a ransomware attack. Why wait!
