Seminars & Books

THE MARBLEHEAD GROUP provides its clients with customized on-site seminars and workshops on privacy and security, the HIPAA rules, FTC rules, and other relevant requirements. These presentations constitute a critical step in raising management awareness of the broad scope of the rules and the significant amount of work required to comply with them. Management support for development of and ongoing investment in strong privacy and security processes is essential for success.

Learn what the HIPAA privacy and security rules really mean, and what the US Department of Health and Human Services is doing about compliance. Too many organizations are either underestimating the impact on day-to-day business operations, or they're going overboard with expensive solutions such as technical gadgets and skipping over the more important basics. Be sure your organization knows what it needs now and what it can defer until later. Learn how to perform a risk assessment and a compliance audit, with specific guidance in the context of your organization. Make sure your information owners and your IT managers understand their role in protecting privacy and creating and maintaining a secure environment. The risks are real and growing … just waiting to be exploited. Identity theft, for example, is reported to have jumped by 22% from 2007 to 2008, according to Javelin Strategy & Research.

Kate Borten, CISSP, CISM, founder and president of THE MARBLEHEAD GROUP, has been lauded as uniquely knowledgeable about these topics, and her seminars are rated among the best in the country.






Ms. Borten is an articulate professional who explains privacy and security concepts, requirements, and solutions in plain language. For example, several of her books provide readers with a clear understanding of HIPAA’s security rule, the intent of Health and Human Services, and knowledge of standard security practices against which to measure their own efforts.

Her books are useful aids to learn what you need to know, reinforce what you already know, and help you explain security and risk to your organization for management buy-in.
