West Deptford, NJ (PRWEB) October 08, 2020
ICS Corporation, a leader in innovative and creative marketing, data management and distribution services for clients nationwide, has completed a rigorous examination of its data security processes and systems in order to meet the demanding controls of the Health Insurance Portability and Protection Act (HIPAA) . This demanding examination was performed by 360 Advanced, a respected national Qualified Security Assessor and Certified Public Accounting firm based in Tampa, FL.
HIPAA is a federal law that mandates national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. “As ICS continues to expand the industries that we serve, it is imperative that we ensure that we are protecting the information of our clients,” commented Dennis Fish, Director of Technology and Compliance at ICS. “As a steward of our client’s data, protecting sensitive assets is critical to our ability to provide superior data processing, print and lettershop services. Our compliance with HIPAA standards is yet another of many steps that we have taken to ensure we maintain industry leading data management protocols.”
The services performed were an assessment of internal controls in place to satisfy the Omnibus Final Security Rule governing “protected health information” that the Department of Health and Human Services issued in January 2013. This compliance assessment involved understanding Print and Mail services provided by ICS, and documenting and verifying the safeguards in place to meet the relevant aspects of the Omnibus final rule on behalf of covered entities who maintain health information within ICS’ software and facility.
“This process is an evolutionary one,” said Fish. “As technology advances and the usage of personal data grows, our responsibility to stay on the cutting edge of information security is critical. Partners like 360 Advanced help us to do that.”
Established in 1965, ICS is a full-service print, mail and fulfillment business based in West Deptford, NJ. For more information, please visit http://www.ics-corporation.com .
