The HIPAA Security Rule is a United States federal regulatory requirement specifying a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for assuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of certain healthcare data. HIPAA compliance has become increasingly mandatory to managed service providers providing services to organizations that store healthcare data.
