    Attached is a copy of the differences between the 2016 and 2018 versions of the OCR Audit Protocol page.
    https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/compliance-enforcement/audit/protocol/index.html

    I happened to have saved the 2016 version pasted directly into Word. I took that version and copied it into an old text editor that I like to still use and did the same for the new 2018 version. I then ran an old Diff program against the two text versions, comparing the two versions. I saved the results into a Word document that is attached. The Diff program display the line numbers as found from the text files. You may have to search a bit to find the actual location of the changes.

    Only lines with changes in them are displayed. Gray means nothing changed in that part of the text. Red is text from the old version that is being replaced. Blue is text from the new version that is being inserted.

    The comparison includes the introduction section. I've just started reading through the changes. But at a quick glance it appears most of the changes are in the introduction section and then mostly the Breach section.

    I hope this helps everyone. I'll be sure to update my version with the changes.
