Carr co-authors data security article in Rhode Island Small Business Journal

PROVIDENCE (March 25, 2014) – The Rhode Island Small Business Journal recently published an article co-authored by Angela Carr on data security and the perils of inaction by companies entrusted with private information of consumers and medical patients.

The article analyzes the steps companies – including health care entities – should be taking to protect private data, and the risks they face when they fail to take those precautions, including government investigations and potential fines, audit fees, and potential civil suits.

Carr has presented numerous seminars to Rhode Island and Massachusetts health care providers on best practices for transmitting and storing electronic medical records in accordance with HIPAA regulations. She has also written on HIPAA compliance in the wake of regulatory changes.
