Compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule

Auditors are beginning to move beyond the application layer and demanding actual data security

The HIPAA Security Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information (PHI). It applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and health care providers. The Security Rule requires covered entities to maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for protecting PHI. Auditors have become more sophisticated; they are moving beyond application level safeguards and demanding to see security applied to the actual data stores. As healthcare organizations have embraced cloud technologies for scale and efficiency it has presented new compliance reporting challenges. The Security Rule still applies to all data stores - whether they are located on premises or in the cloud:

icon good legit traffic


Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all PHI created, received, maintained or transmitted

icon attack threat

Protect against threats

Identify and protect against anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information

icon account takeover

Prevent improper use

Protect against reasonably anticipated impermissible uses or disclosures

icon compliance

Workforce compliance

Ensure that the proper rights and privileges are applied and enforced for end-users

The new healthcare compliance imperative: protect data at the source

Healthcare organizations' complex IT environments demand new data security requirements to protect data at the source. You need to rely on a unified data-centric platform that provides the broadest coverage across a broad range of data repositories - on-premises data stores, geographically distributed systems, and cloud/multi-cloud/hybrid-cloud deployments - to coordinate policies, monitoring and enforcement to eliminate any gaps that could leave data stores vulnerable to attack.
