Using this mobile app allows staff and IT security professionals to assess whether a data breach has occurred and provides a “total risk score” for any potential data breach. The tool walks users through action steps required under the HITECH Act, and allows them to alert other staff members of a potential breach in order to determine whether an investigation needs to take place.
This mobile risk assessment application is available for download on iTunes for $1.99. For more information, please visit www.nchica.org or www.oakgrovetech.com.
