HIPAA Compliance Made Simple by Pondurance


In any organization that works with personal health information (PHI), the regulations established by HIPAA set the standard for physical, network and process security measures that must be implemented to handle that data. It ensures the protection and privacy of individuals’ health information as companies adopt new technologies and processes to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care. Compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule is mandatory for these businesses and costly for those who violate them (even if they do so unknowingly).

As part of Pondurance’s cyber risk and regulatory compliance assessment services, we offer a focused review of your IT systems environment to identify areas of risk and maturity as they relate to the HIPAA Security Rule. At the conclusion of the assessment, Pondurance delivers an executive summary along with detailed findings, risk ratings and recommendations, using the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) maturity levels rating system for each control requirement. This ensures you have a comprehensive foundation to develop a plan of action milestones.

Benefits

The Pondurance HIPAA Security Rule Compliance Assessment is conducted by our team of security experts, partnering directly with you to guide you through the process. A team of Pondurance experts embeds with your multidisciplinary teams, analyzes your current HIPAA compliance posture and outlines a set of desired outcomes for proper handling of electronic PHI with categorized references to how they can be achieved.

Assessment & Audit
After extensive review, Pondurance provides an assessment and an evidence-based audit of the organization’s security program maturity, leveraging the NIST maturity levels as a baseline to score across five high-level cybersecurity functions, 23 categories and 108 subcategories, which cover the breadth of security objectives for an organization.

Results
Our security experts generate and deliver an executive summary and a detailed summary showing maturity ranking, risk level, compliance risks and recommendations for remediation, giving you a clear path to continuous HIPAA compliance and risk mitigation.
