Can an entity comply with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the specialized requirements of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the industry standards pertaining to the use of payment cards? Although these regulatory regimes are quite different in purpose and scope, the common denominator is the privacy and security of an individual research participant’s data. Health care providers in the U.S. are familiar with HIPAA. Many health care providers are less familiar with the reach of the GDPR and how it can affect researchers in the U.S. Layered atop these complexities are the security standards which impact the use of payment cards for research participants. Join us in a discussion of the common principles and distinguishing characteristics of these three sets of security requirements and how they relate to clinical trials research.

- Distinguish between the scope of HIPAA and GDPR.
