The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to develop standards and requirements for maintenance and transmission of health information that identifies individual patients. These standards are designed to improve efficiency and protect the security and confidentiality of electronic health information.
The HIPAA regulations are impacting healthcare in five major areas:
Privacy and security regulations will be the most difficult and costly to implement and maintain. These regulations are broad in scope, less definitive and require constant monitoring for ongoing compliance. Short implementation timeframes, additional staffing requirements and the requirements for a third party security network vulnerability assessment require that you look outside your organization for assistance.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines only give general information about what is expected of healthcare providers. It provides guidance but provides no details about specific security practices. That is where the healthcare providers will need the most our security expertise, since they'll use that information to decide how to best proceed in protecting their critical information and systems.
The security assessment will include the evaluation of:
InfoSecPro will validate your network against the corporate security policy and known Internet attacks. Risk analysis will be performed using the industry standard risk profile matrix. The Security Analysis Report will document any exploits found. The Security Analysis Report will suggest possible security solutions to alleviate the vulnerabilities.
ISO 17799, the Code of Practice for Information Security Management, is a standard which describes a management framework within which an organization can examine and improve its security posture.
Some of potential vulnerabilities and suggested countermeasures are included in the following Security Checklist.
