Why train your employees on HIPAA?

Most HIPAA training isn’t keeping up with the changing landscape of who handles sensitive data. Ours does. Data privacy and protection should be a core value for teams doing business with healthcare providers, medical device companies, or other customers handling customer PHI.


Not a doctor

You won’t see characters in scrubs or suits, but you will encounter scenarios specific to the tech industry in our HIPAA training.


HIPAA is for People, too
