Diplomatic Council partner and member organisation Temos International Healthcare Accreditation ist hosting a two-hour web-seminar on October 12, 2021, focused on data protection especially as it pertains to healthcare.
Data breaches including ransomware attacks are on the rise making data protection increasingly important particularly when it comes to protecting patients’ healthcare information. Data protection legislation and regulation already exists in many countries including the European Union (GDPR) and United States (HIPAA) and is being adopted by many more newcomers such as Brazil, Turkey, and Thailand. Leading expert, Alex Cespedes will lead a practical session sharing first-hand experiences, knowledge, insights, and traps to avoid during the two hour-session that includes a Q&A portion for participants to ask about their most pressing problems.
Temos and The Diplomatic Council have been strategic partners for several years. Because of Temos’ track record for the highest standards of accreditation programs for hospitals and clinics around the world, the Diplomatic Council has entered into an exclusive agreement with Temos for its accredited clients to become “Preferred Providers” for members of The Diplomatic Council as well as its associated organizations.
According to Dr. Claudia Mika, Temos Founder and CEO, „Our relationship with The Diplomatic Council is a great privilege. Our team as well as our accredited hospitals and clinics value the relationship based on excellence and trust. Working together to present this web-seminar is the next step in our relationship to focus on an issue of growing importance. We are pleased to share the expertise of Mr. Alex Cespedes with our clients and a wider audience“.
