Driving data value requires careful consideration beyond legal compliance under GDPR, HIPAA and state-level laws like CCPA.
Once you’ve completed this two-day course, you’ll know what’s required to maximize data utility while meeting your organization’s regulatory and privacy obligations.
Understand data de-identification and learn how to protect privacy
This course is designed to give you a better understanding of the HITRUST De-Identification Framework. You’ll learn about practical methods and tools used to render data non-identifiable (for example, de-identified under the HIPAA “Expert Determination” method; or anonymized under GDPR).*
The introductory material is delivered online via the HITRUST Academy. The primary material is delivered in-person by an instructor over two full days—either in HITRUST’s public classroom in Frisco, Texas, or privately, on-site at your own location.
* This course may be used by professionals seeking the HITRUST Certified De-Identification Associate (CDA) credential, or the HITRUST Certified De-Identification Professional (CDP) credential.
