In today’s litigious business world, cyber-related matters could land you in court. As a computer security professional, you are protecting your data, but are you protecting your company? While you know industry standards and regulations, you may not be a legal expert. Fortunately, in a few hours of reading, rather than months of classroom study, Tari Schreider’s The Manager’s Guide to Cybersecurity Law: Essentials for Today’s Business, lets you integrate legal issues into your security program. Tari Schreider, a board-certified information security practitioner with a criminal justice administration background, has written a much-needed book that bridges the gap between cybersecurity programs and cybersecurity law. He says, “My nearly 40 years in the fields of cybersecurity, risk management, and disaster recovery have taught me some immutable truths. One of these truths is that failure to consider the law when developing a cybersecurity program results in a protective façade or false sense of security.” In a friendly style, offering real-world business examples from his own experience supported by a wealth of court cases, Schreider covers the range of practical information you will need as you explore – and prepare to apply – cybersecurity law. His practical, easy-to-understand explanations help you to: Understand your legal duty to act reasonably and responsibly to protect assets and information. Identify which cybersecurity laws have the potential to impact your cybersecurity program. Upgrade cybersecurity policies to comply with state, federal, and regulatory statutes. Communicate effectively about cybersecurity law with corporate legal department and counsel. Understand the implications of emerging legislation for your cybersecurity program. Know how to avoid losing a cybersecurity court case on procedure – and develop strategies to handle a dispute out of court. Develop an international view of cybersecurity and data privacy – and international legal frameworks. Schreider takes you beyond security standards and regulatory controls to ensure that your current or future cybersecurity program complies with all laws and legal jurisdictions. Hundreds of citations and references allow you to dig deeper as you explore specific topics relevant to your organization or your studies. This book needs to be required reading before your next discussion with your corporate legal department.

While the vast majority of providers never intend to commit fraud or file false claims, complex procedures, changing regulations, and evolving technology make it nearly impossible to avoid billing errors. For example, if you play by HIPAA’s rules, a physician is a provider; however, Medicare requires that the same physician must be referred to as a supplier. Even more troubling is the need to alter claims to meet specific requirements that may conflict with national standards. Far from being a benign issue, differing guidelines can lead to false claims with financial and even criminal implications. Compliance for Coding, Billing & Reimbursement, Second Edition: A Systematic Approach to Developing a Comprehensive Program provides an organized way to deal with the complex coding, billing, and reimbursement (CBR) processes that seem to force providers to choose between being paid and being compliant. Fully revised to account for recent changes and evolving terminology, this unique and accessible resource covers statutorily based programs and contract-based relationships, as well as ways to efficiently handle those situations that do not involve formal relationships. Based on 25 years of direct client consultation and drawing on teaching techniques developed in highly successful workshops, Duane Abbey offers a logical approach to CBR compliance. Designed to facilitate efficient reimbursements that don’t run afoul of laws and regulations, this resource – Addresses the seven key elements promulgated by the OIG for any compliance program Discusses numerous types of compliance issues for all type of healthcare providers Offers access to online resources that provide continually updated information Cuts through the morass of terminology and acronyms with a comprehensive glossary Includes a CD-ROM packed with regulations and information In addition to offering salient information illustrated by case studies, Dr, Abbey provides healthcare providers and administrators, as well as consultants and attorneys, with the mindset and attitude required to meet this very real challenge with savvy, humor, and perseverance.

This eBook is designed to provide the reader with accurate analyses of the AML/CTF Financial and Legal Intelligence, law and practice in the nations of the world with the most current references and resources. The eBook is organized around five main themes: 1. Money Laundering Risk and Compliance; 2. The Law of Anti-Money Laundering and Compliance; 3. Criminal and Civil Forfeiture; 4. Compliance and 5. International Cooperation. Each chapter is made up of five parts. Part I, "Introduction," begins with the analysis of money laundering risks and compliance with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and then concludes with the country's rating based on the International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) of the U.S. State Department. Part II, "Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Terrorist Financing (AML/CTF)" and Part III, "Criminal and Civil Forfeiture," evaluate the judicial and legislative structures of the country. Given the increasing global dimension of AML/CTF activities, these sections give special attention to how a country has created statutes, decisions, policies and the judicial enforcement procedures needed to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. Part IV, "Compliance," examines the most critical processes for the prevention and detection of money laundering and terrorist financing. This section reflects on the practical elements that should be in place so that financial institutions can comply with AML/CTF requirements; these are categorized into the development and implementation of internal controls, policies and procedures. Part V, "International Cooperation," reviews the compilation of international laws and treaties between countries working together to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. As these unlawful activities can occur in any given country, it is important to identify the international participants who are cooperating to develop methods to obstruct these criminal activities.
