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 it (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.
