Speaking at the 10th annual Safeguarding Health Information HIPAA conference, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights Director Roger Severino discussed one of his goals for his new position, HealthcareInfoSecurity reports. Severino’s top enforcement priority is to find a “big, juicy” data breach case to use as an example to teach others about handling incidents. “I haven't zoomed in on a particular area, whether it will be cybersecurity, ransomware, physical security, etc. It wouldn't be the best tactic to say what we're looking for, but I think coming into this job, I've gotten up to speed on HIPAA, and as the threats evolve, we have to evolve in how we approach it — and we have to be smart about who we target,” Severino said.
