Compliance Mandates: HIPAA
How BOUNCER Helps You Meet the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
Meeting the Number One Objective of HIPAA: Protect Patient Privacy
As a professional in the health care industry, meeting the HIPAA regulations is critical to demonstrating that you are protecting the privacy and security of your patient information. While there are many specific guidelines within HIPAA, the spirit of the regulation focuses on one thing: protect your patients’ privacy and the personal data you store in digital patient records. In today’s connected world, the single greatest threat to that privacy is cyber attacks and targeted malware.
Bouncer is ideally suited to stopping malware that targets sensitive patient data without overburdening your IT staff. Bouncer was designed to provide unmatched endpoint security with an intuitive administrative structure for real users like yourself.
Legacy Antivirus Solutions Don’t Meet Your Needs
Today’s cyber attacks target your organization and your data. If you are relying on traditional antivirus solutions that use blacklisting to stop today’s sophisticated malware threats, you’re leaving your enterprise open to HIPPA privacy and security violations. Simply put, antivirus can’t stop targeted attacks. Unfortunately any successful malware compromise can result in:
- Compromise or loss of critical patient data
- Multimillion dollar fines and imprisonment
- Exclusion from participation in Medicare
How Bouncer Helps You
Bouncer helps you lock down your endpoints so that you stop malicious code from compromising the integrity of your data and putting you at risk of violating the HIPAA standards. No matter how the code is delivered, if it is not on the application whitelist, it does not run. As a result, your patient information is protected from theft and misappropriation that can occur through targeted malware attacks and other new threats, including:
- Memory exploits
- Viruses, worms and Trojans
- Keyloggers and other spyware
- Zero-day vulnerabilities
