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 health sector, these include compliance laws such as HIPAA and HITECH.
Steep penalties apply for non-compliance. The penalty cap for HIPAA violations, once set at $25,000, is now $1,500,000 per year, per violation. Small businesses and new medical healthcare providers may have a hard time clearing these penalties, especially when a discovered breach or violation is initiated by a complaint.
Well-implemented compliance rules protect end users and their medical information from any data theft, as well as subsequent malicious usage of their information. The best way to start on the road to compliance is to perform an audit, identify your business’s cybersecurity risks, and lay out a good strategic compliance plan.
