Protect your network, save time on HIPAA, and maintain your reputation.
HIPAA management for large networksData security and HIPAA compliance are more important than ever for the healthcare sector. From large health networks to small-town medical practices, protected health information (PHI) remains a high-value target for attackers. Health organizations were hit hard in 2017—the healthcare industry experienced 23.7% of total data breaches that year. This trend of cyber-attacks and data theft in healthcare seems like it’s here to stay, but complying with HIPAA requirements will go a long way to protect your system from attackers.
