Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — HIPAA HITECH compliance is an ongoing process. It cycles through the three key areas of risk assessment, remediation, and training. In this first of a series of webinars you will see not only how to manage each step in the process but how to link the steps into a program that keeps you continuously compliant.
Three “best of breed” software programs have been linked to support the cycle of compliance. ACR2 Solutions developed the risk assessment tools, Compliance Helper built the remediation program, and Rebecca Herold & Associates designed the training and awareness package.
ACR2 Solutions: The HIPAA Security Rule Compliance Reporterâ¢ (HSCR) deploys state of the art risk management technology to allow organizations to meet the HIPAA Security Rule requirements. The software supports SCAP vulnerability scan data uploads and input or uploads of syslog data from perimeter security devices. Policy inputs include HIPAA specific questions and enhanced reporting. The HSCR console allows for organization access to real-time display of the HIPAA security rule compliance status of business associates as described in NIST 800-66.
Compliance Helper provides a step by step process for building and maintaining a comprehensive privacy and information security program. It is delivered through the cloud computing model and is supported by a personal Helper who is a privacy and information security expert. The Compliance Helper policy tool is fully integrated with the risk assessment software.
Rebecca Herold & Associates: Rebecca Herold, “The Privacy Professor,” is a leading information security, privacy, compliance and training expert. Rebecca is currently listed among Computerworld’s top three Best Privacy Advisors in the world, and as a Top Influencer in IT Security by IT Security magazine. Her training and awareness program helps keep staff members compliant with HIPAA requirements. This “how to” webinar, which is free, will show how to implement a sustainable cycle of risk assessment, remediation and training.
