HIPAA COW Risk Assessment Template:  The HIPAA COW Risk Management Networking Group has been busy at their monthly meetings.  They finished incorporating key information from the NIST HIPAA Security Toolkit questions (v2011: http://scap.nist.gov/hipaa/) into the Security Questions worksheet for these subject “categories”: Technical Access Control (encryption and integrity), ePHI Disposal, and Group Health Plans.  The review of this NIST document was completed. The updated document can be found HERE under #3.
