HIPAA Compliance Isn’t New but Still Necessary

The healthcare industry is the top target of cyber crime.  HIPAA compliance standards are focused on the privacy of patients and their information.  Why is healthcare the top target?

  1. An average medical record is worth $350 on the black market in comparison to 50 cents for a credit card
  2. Most healthcare entities are not following basic security hygiene outlined by HIPAA regulations

Who falls under HIPAA Compliance Regulations?

While a business associate must agree to comply with HIPAA rules and is responsible for ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI in its possession, it is your responsibility to guarantee HIPAA compliance. If one of your business associates fails to comply with HIPAA rules, it is your responsibility to take action. Make sure the noncompliance is corrected or  you may have to terminate the contract. Seem overwhelming to maintain? We offer business associate HIPAA compliance tracking. Learn more about all of our features to help your business be cyber resilient.
