"RED FLAGS" RULE ENFORCEMENT DELAYED; NEW HIPAA/HIGHTECH REQUIREMENTS

Do you remember the email we sent you April 30th regarding the "Red Flags" Rule going into effect on May 1st?  Do you remember our email two days later advising you that the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") issued an eleventh hour stay of enforcement, changing the deadline from May 1st to August 1st?  Well, guess what?  Once again, the FTC announced yesterday that it will further delay enforcement of the Rule until November 1st, 2009.  You can breathe easier for 90 more days.  After that, who knows?
 
Since the "Red Flags" Rule has caused so much confusion and anxiety for our clients, Antheil Maslow & MacMinn, LLP is holding a Seminar in conjunction with Parente Randolph, LLC on October 29, 2009 at the Bucks County Bar Association from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Susan Maslow and Patricia Collins of our offices will be addressing the "Red Flags" Rule and the new HIPAA/HITECH requirements.    Chad Schieken, CISA, Director of Corporate Governance and Risk Management at Parente Randolph, LLC, will provide guidance on Network Security Assessments.  Save the date.  We know you will be fascinated.  Invitations will follow. 

Antheil Maslow & MacMinn, LLP can provide guidance in helping your Company comply with the Red Flag Rules and the new HIPAA/HITECH requirements.  Please call your primary attorney at the Firm, or if you are not presently represented by us, contact Susan A. Maslow, Esq. or Patricia C. Collins, Esq. to discuss any questions you have regarding the above issues or to schedule an appointment.
