FLORHAM PARK, N.J., June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DataMotion™, an experienced email encryption and health information service provider (HISP), today announced the company will present an interactive webinar entitled "Tips for Using Encryption to Reduce HIPAA Compliance Risk and Protect Your Data." This free webinar will take place on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

"Since the enactment of HIPAA nearly two decades ago, there have been numerous changes within the healthcare industry. The HIPAA Security Rule is flexible enough to adapt to the significant changes in the HIT environment but the healthcare industry is still struggling with the implementation of robust information security programs that protect patients' health data. There is a great deal of confusion regarding HIPAA compliance still after all these years," said Chris Apgar, renowned security and privacy expert and president and CEO of Apgar and Associates, LLC. "The upcoming webinar will clear up those misconceptions by providing an update on the 2015 HIPAA audits and by offering best practices for lowering your risk as it relates to electronic PHI."
