"Security and HIPAA Compliance: Meeting the Challenge of Securing Protected Health Information"
Providing greater risk visibility, NetIQ enables more streamlined compliance with HIPAA.
As the need to ensure the security of sensitive health information grows, security and compliance teams must look to more integrated approaches to both reduce risk and enable streamlined and efficient user workflows. This white paper provides insight into:
The most important elements of securing sensitive health information
Meeting HIPAA compliance requirements in a scalable and cost-effective way
The HITECH Act, which addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information
By focusing efforts in the key areas of controlling access, monitoring healthcare personnel with broad privileges (privileged users) and managing privilege delegation, organizations can reduce the net risk to themselves and sensitive health information, which in turn eases compliance with standards such as HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
