Healthcare (HIPAA)

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a law designed for healthcare organizations and sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection. HIPAA mandates that all covered entities and business associates with access to Personal Health Information (PHI) must have technical, physical, and administrative safeguards to protect the confidentiality and integrity of PHI.

A foundational component of compliance, HIPAA requires an assessment of risks and vulnerabilities and implementation of “reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect…the security or integrity of ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information).” Regular vulnerability scanning enables organizations to assess healthcare devices, applications, and networks for common vulnerabilities and exploits or security weaknesses.
