Compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that companies who process or store protected health information (PHI) must have security measures in place to protect the privacy of that data. This encompasses physical security, security processes, and information system security. HIPAA regulations outline the lawful use and disclosure of PHI.
Digital technology has revolutionized healthcare, but also exposed organizations to an evolving landscape of cyberattack threats. Maintaining HIPAA compliance requires expert knowledge of cybersecurity and healthcare-related technology, in addition to understanding regulatory concerns.
