Office for Civil Rights’ (OCR’s) limited 9-page guidance document refers organizations to technical procedures in manuals and is geared to “the computer security community.” Several Federal “Security Risk Assessment Tools” are available, but they are incomplete and cumbersome. And using them does not even guarantee compliance with the laws.
