Device Security Resources and Tools
Secure Your Devices to meet HIPAA Security Requirements
(no techy experience needed!)

Part of what lets vulnerable clients know they can trust us with their stories is the knowledge that we regard those stories as sacred and private.
So that raises a question: how do we hold a safe, secure space when clients communicate with us by email, text, or phone?
It all starts with you, your processes… and your devices.
A Must For Clinicians
