The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) protects the privacy and security of personal health information (PHI). Any healthcare organization that stores, processes, or transmits PHI must meet HIPAA compliance requirements, including any business associates that perform functions or provide services on their behalf.
The HIPAA Compliance Security Rule lists a set of security standards with implementation requirements designed to safeguard PHI in electronic form (ePHI). These standards are grouped into five categories: administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, technical safeguards, organizational requirements, and policies and procedures.
Use InsightVM to conduct a thorough assessment of risks across vulnerabilities, configurations, and controls, and prioritize risks for remediation based on threat exposure and business impact. Automatically audit your systems for compliance with secure configurations, password policies, and access control requirements.
Simulate real-world attacks against your defenses and evaluate the effectiveness of security measures at protecting ePHI with Metasploit. The closed feedback loop with InsightVM enables you to validate the exploitability of vulnerabilities in Metasploit and automatically prioritize for remediation in InsightVM.
InsightIDR provides the ability to tag systems containing ePHI as “restricted,” then monitors all activity on these systems for unauthorized access. Leverage user behavior analytics to detect security incidents and accelerate investigations with instant user context, endpoint interrogation, and advanced search capabilities.
Use InsightAppSec to dynamically scan your web, mobile, and cloud applications for vulnerabilities (including those that allow unauthorized persons to bypass authentication controls), and generate interactive reports for remediation. Leverage built-in HIPAA reports to quickly identify gaps and demonstrate compliance.
