Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Training gives practical guidance in developing your organization’s classifications. You’ll see examples of data categories, plus comparative rules for handling data in different categories.

Information classification is a key building block for a robust information security program. No longer limited to secret government documents, this concept helps organizations of all types and sizes get their arms around their information assets. Info classification lets organizations simplify their policies, procedures, and standards by applying similar controls to all data of a particular value. This reduces the need for specialized or application-specific policies. Training your workforce becomes easier and more successful once employees see the patterns.

This webinar gives practical guidance in developing your organization’s classifications. You’ll see examples of data categories, plus comparative rules for handling data in different categories.

These rules or policies reflect regulatory requirements and meet some of the expectations of HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules, for example. Additionally, in case of a breach or a legal challenge, an information classification scheme helps demonstrate an organization’s due diligence and awareness of accepted security principles.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • What is an information classification scheme
  • Value and benefits of using information classification
  • Examples of classification levels or categories
  • What processes for access to, handling, and disposal of information assets are likely to be included in the scheme
  • Examples of a scheme showing increasingly stringent rules based on classification level
  • Cross-references to relevant HIPAA Security Rule standards and specifications, as well as Privacy Rule requirements

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable information for organizations affected by information security and privacy regulations such as HIPAA and GLB, since information classification supports compliance. And any business or agency with information assets to protect can benefit since information classification provides underlying support for information security programs.

Within organizations, individuals who will benefit include:

  • IT/IS management and staff
  • Information security officer (director, manager)
  • Risk management, privacy and compliance officers
  • Auditors
