About This Course:
Companies experience data breaches every day, but when they affect the company's benefit plans there are some unique issues to consider. This is particularly true when the plans are subject to ERISA and HIPAA.

Questions concerning the application of ERISA preemption, determining who is responsible for the breach response, and related issues often can unduly delay the breach response.

This webinar will help businesses, and in particular their HR, legal and benefits leaders to understand the nuances ERISA and HIPAA raise when a data breach affects covered plans. Learn best practices for avoiding a breach and, should one happen, how to respond.
