Penetration Testing: The Forgotten HIPAA Security Requirement 

Chad Peterson

When: Wednesday, April 19
from 1:15-1:35 pm CT 
Where: Theater B Cybersecurity Command Center 
Presenter: NetSPI Managing Director Chad Peterson 

The HIPAA Security rule was written to ensure that a covered entity is doing what is necessary to protect ePHI – yet there is no mention of the term penetration testing anywhere in the requirements.   

While pentesting is not explicitly written into the Rule, it remains a critical component of HIPAA compliance. Notably, pentests address the need to map, understand, and close gaps in your HIPAA attack surface that could expose ePHI. 

In this session, Chad Peterson, a former healthcare industry security manager, GRC manager, and health information technology auditor, will discuss: 

  • Where penetration testing fits into the HIPAA Security Rule 
  • Best practices for mapping your HIPAA attack surface and maintaining a strong asset inventory 
  • And why the term “HIPAA-compliant penetration test” should be eliminated from our vocabulary

Where: West Building – Level 4, Room W470A
Presenter: Phil Morris, Director, Enterprise Security Risk  Governance Team, Altera Health and Chad Peterson, Managing Director, NetSPI 

Trust within a business is critical, especially when it comes to building an effective security program. But how do security leaders establish trust and keep it? 

Join Altera Digital Health’s Phil Morris and NetSPI’s Chad Peterson as they share lessons learned from careers in healthcare security, providing you with practical steps on how to:

  • Build a security champions team across silos 
  • Create shared goals and responsibilities 
  • Develop a risk-based security program 

Establishing and keeping trust isn’t simple when it comes to security, but it’s not complex. From this presentation, you’ll walk away ready to secure what makes sense, add compensating controls where needed, and understand the roles security versus the business take on when it comes to risk.
