Arctic Wolf Platform for the HIPAA Security Rule

Nov 1, 2021

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule focuses on the safeguarding of electronic protected health information (ePHI) through the implementation of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards.

Covered entity and business associate (CE & BA) organizations are required to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all ePHI they create, receive, maintain, or transmit; protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information; protect against reasonably anticipated unauthorized uses or disclosures of protected health information (PHI); and ensure compliance by its workforce.

Compliance with the Security Rule is mandatory for organizations defined by HIPAA as a CE & BA, and such organizations face frequent challenges in safeguarding ePHI from a myriad of internal and external risks.
