On March 10, 2015 and March 11, 2015, Department of Developmental Services Staff  provided Information Security and Privacy Awareness Training to regional center management staff and service providers. The training included best practices for handling protected health information in the course of conducting business. The presenters shared feedback from other regional centers and examples of breaches and non-breaches. Techniques to prevent breaches and keep information secure were also provided as well as invaluable insight on how to proactively protect personal information.
