Are you HIPAA compliant?

Checklist offers pointers on how to stay on the right side of the regulations


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been around a while and network administrators affected by the act should be up to speed with its legislative requirements, but its impact is still felt when an organization is accused of a data breach. 

Fines that can be as high as $50,000 per day should focus your attention and that is why it is highly relevant to understand how aspects of compliance have evolved since the introduction of HIPAA in 1996, especially when you consider how cloud computing has created a whole new set of data security challenges.

Click on the link for a checklist that provides a useful overview of HIPAA and offers pointers on how to stay on the right side of the regulations.
