HIPAA - Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
Effective and Efficient HIPAA Compliance
Due to the wide range of demands HIPAA imposes on organizations, ensuring you are in full conformance with the standard can be a significant challenge. At Pivot Point Security, we guide our clients to effectively and efficiently reach compliance. Whether its signing a Business Associate Agreement, asserting HIPAA conformance during a vendor security review, or undergoing a HIPAA audit, clients who work with us can relax knowing that patient health information is optimally secured and they are in compliance with the regulation.
What is HIPAA?
As with many other regulations, HIPAA is largely a call to implement a comprehensive group of information security controls based on a risk assessment. Contrary to prevailing opinion, achieving HIPAA Security compliance does not depend on complex technology solutions and strategies, but rather on simpler, people and process-oriented controls.
Where to start?
The main reason to consider FedRAMP certification is the significant business opportunity that it represents. The OMB policy driving FedRAMP is a “Cloud First” policy, which requires agencies to use cloud alternatives when available. OMB is tracking compliance with the agencies as part of a multi-year multi-billion dollar cost-cutting effort.
If you provide Cloud Services and you want to sell these cloud services to the U.S. federal government, you will need to become FedRAMP Authorized to Operate.
