Whitepaper: Security and HIPAA compliance

As the need to ensure the security of sensitive health information grows, security and compliance teams must look to more integrated approaches to both reduce risk and enable streamlined and efficient user workflows.

This whitepaper provides insight into:

  • The most important elements of securing sensitive health information
  • Meeting HIPAA compliance requirements in a scalable and cost-effective way
  • The HITECH Act, which addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information.

By focusing efforts in the key areas of controlling access, monitoring healthcare personnel with broad privileges (privileged users) and managing privilege delegation, organizations can reduce the net risk to themselves and sensitive health information, which in turn eases compliance with standards such as HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
