What is HIPAA Risk Assessment?
The HIPAA security rule requires organizations to annually perform a thorough risk analysis and assess their network, software, hardware and physical environment for security vulnerabilities and correct any security violations that can put your patient’s ePHI (Electronic protected health information) and patient’s privacy at risk.
HIPAA Risk assessment is the act of conducting a thorough analysis of the organization’s network, software, hardware and physical environment to detect potential vulnerabilities that can lead to ePHI data theft/leaks. Disobedience of this requirement can lead to heavy fines, damage to your organization’s reputation and patient’s mistrust. As a healthcare organization, it is your duty to protect the privacy of your patients. Cyber Trust Alliance is here to assist you by conducting a detailed risk assessment in correspondence with HIPAA rules and regulations.
Lack of organization-wide risk analysis is the most common and costly HIPAA violation. Conducting a regular risk assessment will allow you to detect your organization’s vulnerabilities and remediate them before they are exploited by attackers or discovered by regulators and can protect you from costly fines. With our innovative assessment methodologies, Cyber Trust Alliance is here to make this process as seamless and easy as possible.
