Awareness and Education

  • Defend Yourself Against ID Theft
  • Secure Email From OHA/DHS - OHA and DHS secure outbound email containing confidential data or PHI.  Instead of receiving email directly to your inbox, you will receive a notification message that OHA or DHS has an email waiting for you on a secure server. A link will take you, via a secure browser, to that server, where you will receive instructions for opening the email.
  • Password Security - Using passwords and how to create and change them.
  • Phish Sense - Phishing is an identity theft scam in which "spammers" use an authentic looking e-mail to trick you into providing personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, passwords, and account information. Learn how to spot and avoid phishing scams.
  • Incident Reporting  - If you've detected an information security or privacy problem we'd like to know about it.  The Privacy/Information Security Incident Response Program (PSIRP) can help you with incident response.


  • Privacy forms - Ten forms were developed as part of the HIPAA Privacy implementation process. These forms give clients a variety of ways to specify their privacy requests, and they inform clients how their private information will be protected. *Note: Forms are also available in alternate languages.  Search by using the form number listed below.
