Securing Protected Health Information

Companies that handle protected health information in any way, can face penalties for failing to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

It’s not just the healthcare industry that’s affected. Businesses that provide services to healthcare providers and insurance companies are also impacted by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy rule.

HIPAA requirements mean you have to deal with several challenges:

  • Targeted threats: Attacks specifically designed to compromise healthcare networks and steal protected health information (PHI)
  • Non-stop Operations: Operations teams need to constantly keep networks updated, patched and configured
  • Resources gap: Skilled security resources required to perform security testing and enforce security rules are difficult to find and retain

The Alert Logic approach to HIPAA and HIPAA-HITECH compliance helps you to:

  • Implement administrative and technical safeguards you need to be HIPAA and HIPAA-HITECH compliant
  • Detect and prevent network intrusions, identify vulnerabilities and mis-configurations
  • Find suspicious- or active-breach activity, with alerts within 15 minutes, from our security operations center

And, we provide 24x7 network security monitoring, expert analysis, and guidance on events and incidents, allowing scarce IT resources to stay focused on business-critical projects. Our security operations center will alert you about suspicious activity or active breaches, within 15-minutes.

HIPAA Compliance Cheat Sheet

Selecting technologies so your organization can apply security controls and testing policies and procedures that help you comply with HIPAA regulations can be overwhelming. This cheat sheet will outline things you should consider, including:

  • Will your Network IDS work in both your on-premises data center and your cloud environments?
  • What website attack vectors is your WAF Security solution blocking?
  • Does your cybersecurity solution create reports to help you demonstrate your HIPAA compliance?


"…we can quickly look up the details of the threat or potential threat, it saves us a lot of time. Alert Logic gives you peace of mind."
