Data breaches and ransomware threaten every industry, but some organizations are particularly ripe targets. In response, governments enforce a much stricter set of compliance laws, and those laws must be observed by any businesses that deal with sensitive information. In the Colorado health sector, these include IT compliance laws such as HIPAA and HITECH.
If your Colorado company or organization does not comply with HIPAA IT security regulations, you’re at risk of steep penalties, including hefty fees. The penalty cap for HIPAA violations, once set at $25,000, is now $1,500,000 per year, per violation. Small healthcare businesses and new medical providers may not be able to pay these penalties, especially when a discovered breach or violation is initiated by a complaint. That’s why it’s best to comply right away with Colorado HIPAA IT security regulations.
Well-implemented compliance rules protect end users and their medical information from data theft, as well as malicious usage of their information. A good way to make sure your Colorado organization is complying with HIPAA IT security is to perform an audit, identify any cybersecurity risks your organization may have, and lay out a good strategic plan for continued compliance.
