Safeguard patient healthcare data
and maintain HIPAA compliance.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires any healthcare organization that deals with protected health information, such as hospitals, medical offices, labs, insurance providers, pharmacies and their business associates, to protect sensitive patient healthcare information (PHI) from being compromised.

The consequences of failing to comply with HIPAA requirements can be severe, with up to $1.5 million in penalties levied in just one year. Some violations can even incur criminal charges. The reason for such stiff penalties is because a patient’s healthcare records contain far more information about an individual than mere financial records hold, facilitating criminal activities such as opening credit cards, filing fraudulent insurance claims or buying prescription drugs and opioids.

To help your organization meet the HIPAA requirements for the privacy and security of PHI, our security solutions detect and prevent data breaches and provide continuous real-time monitoring capabilities, identifying any vulnerabilities or errors that might expose PHI. Coupled with the most effective ways to respond when attacks do occur.

HIPAA requirements


HIPAA requirements involve a set of rules: HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules, the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule and the HIPAA Enforcement Rule. To meet these requirements, companies must:

Successfully deal with cyberattacks
directed toward the theft of PHI
Continually test their system to locate and remediate security risks and vulnerabilities
Keep their system updated on all security
patches and on a compliant configuration
Lapses in any of these areas can result in a breach of HIPAA requirements, which could lead to substantial penalties.

How we can help


Hackers prize patient healthcare information far more than any other, making those in possession of PHI prime targets for cyberattacks. And the rapid growth of telehealth, online billing and patient portals provides cybercriminals with added opportunities for cyberattacks on the healthcare industry. Additionally, most healthcare companies have employees in multiple hospitals, clinics and offices, or working remotely, which vastly expands the opportunities for a security breach, and a HIPAA penalty.

HIFENCE can help your organization mitigate dangers to your network, and keep you HIPAA compliant. We’ll first assess your system’s security profile as it relates to the HIPAA requirements, and then make recommendations for shoring up your system’s vulnerabilities and possible gaps. Then, to keep your system and the patient data it holds safe from cyber threats, we will provide cybersecurity solutions and technical controls, including 24/7 monitoring, threat detection and response, vulnerability and penetration testing, among other advanced safeguards. So no matter how complex or challenging HIPAA requirements are, you’ll be in full compliance with every one of them.

Protect against cybertheft of PHI

Managed Detection and Response (MDR)
HIFENCE MDR delivers full incident management for real-time monitoring and it both identifies security breaches or deviation from HIPAA security best practices, and conducts forensics so your response will be rapid and highly effective.
