Burden of Proof for Breach Notification

Covered Entities and Business Associates must be able to demonstrate that all required notifications were provider, OR that the use or disclosure of unsecured PHI did not constitute a breach.

  • Demonstrating that a risk assessment showed a low probability that PHI has been compromised, OR
  • Showing that the impermissible use or disclosure falls into one of the three exceptions for breach
