These new cybersecurity questions elevate the standard of security satisfying the most-stringent security certifications while maintaining HIPAA compliance.
LINDON, Utah (PRWEB) September 17, 2019
HIPAA One today announced a new set of HIPAA One Security risk analysis questions available exclusively to HIPAA One subscribers. These new questions come ahead of the new 42 CFR Part 2 coverage and updates to the final reporting engine coming later in Q4 2019.
Delivering on the promise of reducing the likelihood of breaches, HIPAA One’s new cybersecurity questions elevate the standard of security satisfying the most-stringent security certifications while maintaining HIPAA compliance.
“When we launched HIPAA One’s software platform, the goal was to simplify and reduce administrative burden in conducting and maintaining a HIPAA SRA by at least 80%,” said Steven Marco, President and CEO of HIPAA One. “Today we see gaps between the SRA and ever-evolving cybersecurity threats facing healthcare. Common-sense dictated leveraging HIPAA’s safeguards to evolve new standards for healthcare and its business associates. Now, subscribers can take advantage of this new functionality without any increase in fees while reducing cybersecurity risk to their organizations.”
New cybersecurity questions and supplied policies and procedures directly address:
•Data Classification and Data Loss Prevention 164.312(b)
•Systems Development Lifecycle (for business associates and in-house software development) 164.308(a)(8)
•Mobile Device Management & Mandatory Policy for BYOD (Bring your own Devices) 164.308(a)(5)(ii)(D), 164.310(d)(2)(ii), 164.312(a)(2)(iv)
•Change Management process as part of security evaluations 164.308(a)(8)
•Replacing weak passwords with passphrases or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) 164.312(d)

These features are following the recently released Vendor Management Solution (VMS) that integrates business associate agreements into a streamlined, automated contract management system.
