The role of HIPAA Security Officer is very important in maintaining compliance. In smaller organizations, there's overlap in employees' roles, so the person that ends up as the HIPAA Security Officer may not have a whole lot of background in compliance. Does the individual serving in this role face more personal liability for breaches than other employees?
