HIPAA SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENTS

Identify and Evaluate Risks within your Business

In-depth, detailed, documentation and review of the People, Processes, and Technology in play and a qualitative rating of the identified risks.

Your Business Evaluated from 3 Angles

People

A CISSP or other security-certified member of our team will sit down with your key points of contact (CISO, CTO, Administrator, Security Coordinator, HIPAA Officer, etc.) to discuss specific daily and recurring processes and tasks that employees and leadership perform to keep protected information safe.

Processes

Your business policies and procedures will be read to determine if they satisfy specific HIPAA and OCR compliance requirements and/or industry Best Practices.

Technology

Non-invasive scans are run on all PCs, servers, firewalls, and network-attached devices to collect in-depth technical information

Your Risks are Identified and Ranked

Following the collection of information and documentation from the evaluation of your business' People, Processes, and Technology, we'll combine all the information into a long report and then review every page of that report to identify risks (whether they are HIPAA risks, security risks, cyber risks, compliance risks, etc.) and list them in order of potential impact to your business, with recommendations for remediation of each identified risk.

Deliverables

At the end of each assessment we meet with you and present a thorough analysis which includes:

 

  • A detailed report of hardware and software inventory, user accounts, security groups, group policies, network shares, internet access, security patches, event logs, listening ports, and additional external vulnerabilities

  • A risk analysis of your companies’ people, processes, and technology which highlights medium and high security risks

  • A compliance based summary of all risks and vulnerabilities identified during the assessment

  • A prioritized list of recommendations on how to mitigate risks and prevent future vulnerabilities.

The Importance of Security Risk Assessments

Protect Your Business: Conduct a Security Assessment

Over the last few years there has been an influx of new healthcare laws and mandates.  The risks of non-compliance are daunting, as HIPAA violation fines can range up to $100,000 per event. In addition, the reputational damage and organizational distractions caused by breaches create costs that often eclipse any fine.

 

Information security is a constant and challenging process. From data protection to secure business practices, it is a challenge that is frequently evolving with new technologies, threats, and regulatory requirements.  Whether you are trying to attest to Meaningful Use, prepare for a potential HIPAA audit, or gain a better understanding of your environment, Strategic can help.
