Editorial Reviews

Review

The book's main strength is its abundant and varied content. It thoroughly describes the main provisions of HIPAA's security and privacy requirements using actual language from the legislation interspersed with the authors' commentary. This format…helpfully guides readers through the labyrinthine HIPAA requirements.
Scott Forbes, Microsoft

Rebecca and Kevin have compiled a wealth of knowledge in an easy-to-read, conversational style. This book is packed with useful facts and practical tips that grabs and keeps your attention as though you are listening to the authors in your own living room. The astute reader will keep a pad of paper and a pile of 'sticky notes' handy. You will no doubt come back to this valuable resource over and over again!
Michael J. Corby, CCP, CISSP, President and CEO, M. Corby & Associates, Inc.

This is a very comprehensive view of HIPAA privacy and security compliance which provides a pragmatic, step by step methodology for understanding and complying with the regulation. The practical checklists, the quizzes which
can be used in HIPAA awareness programs, and the pointers to valuable resources are all added benefits.
Micki Krause, CISSP, Chief Information Security Officer, Pacific Life Insurance

Format: Hardcover
Rebecca and Kevin have created an excellent resource for HIPAA Security Practictioners. They provide practical guidance for interpreting the HIPAA security rule, in terms that the non-security professional can understand. Especially of value are the ideas on how to "implement" the security rule, broken down by the relevant HIPAA security standard. I agree with the practical approach that they take within the book, as it is consistent with the HIPAA message that I have also been communicating over the past several years. There are also useful lists of items needed to maintain security compliance after implementation. This is a good book for the novice and experienced privacy/security professional. It is nice to see that someone has compiled this much useful information into one book. Nice job ! This is a must have book if you are a Security of Privacy Officer.

Format: Hardcover
I found the book to be straightforward and easy to follow. I have been in the security business for many years and I am now finding it necessary to work on projects revolving around HIPAA. This book navigates the jargon in clear and easy to understand text. The examples and plain discussion around each rule clarified many questions that I had problems answering form my other security associates. There is some bad information floating around the industry and this book was accurate and applicable to today's requirements. The time spent reading this book was an excellent use of my resources, not only the HIPAA aspects, but also for the security insight on issues around privacy and information protection. This was just what I needed to complete some of my pending projects and I would highly recommend it to any security manager or consultants who need a deeper understanding of the current HIPAA security rule.

Format: Hardcover
This is the best single reference that I've seen on the subject. Kevin and Rebecca have assembled a guide that is eminently practical, superbly organized, and tremendously helpful. I reach for it every time I have a question on HIPPA. In fact, it's the only HIPPA reference I've used since I got it.

Format: Hardcover
`The Practical Guide to HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance' is an excellent reference for anyone needed to come up to speed with HIPAA, or wanting a single-source HIPAA handbook. It is written in a clear, easy to understand style.
In six sections (comprising 25 chapters), the book provides you with just about everything you need to know about HIPAA from a security and privacy perspective. It is focused on a real-world approach to HIPAA compliance, and each chapter ends with a practical checklist.
HIPAA can be so overwhelming with its requirements that many people do not know where to start on their road to HIPAA compliance. The book shows what one can do, what the requirements are, and how they can be achieved and maintained in a step-by-step manner.
Appendix A contains 4 different case studies that give the reader different approaches to HIPAA, from the perspective of different HIPAA covered entities.
Appendix B contains nearly 20 pages of Sample Documents. It is hoped that the authors will place these documents on the books web site.
Appendix C is a good list of various HIPAA resources (software, consulting firms, etc).
Appendix D is a quiz about various HIPAA concepts.
Overall, `The Practical Guide to HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance' is a very readable, practical and user-friendly guide for getting a handle on the abstract HIPAA requirements.
