Anthem, Inc. has agreed to pay $16 million to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and take substantial corrective action to settle potential violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules after a series of cyberattacks led to the largest health data breach in history and exposed the electronic protected health information of almost 79 million people.
Even if your data breach is not publicly used and doesn’t hurt your business directly, doesn’t mean that HIPAA will not com back to you.
While multitasking, which is something that healthcare insurance agents do a lot of, it is fairly easy to make a mistake. Our solution ensures that your employees process EHR (Electronic Healthcare Records) and PHI (Protected Health Information) documents in the proper and secure way - where you allow them to.
While the cloud solution facilitated the use of software in general, it also created a large security gap. Allowing employees to login from personal devices may lead to intentionally or unintentionally HIPAA violation. Our passwordless login system allows your employees to seamlessly connect to your preferable cloud platforms only from the devices you approved.
Furthermore, the fact that your employees are not aware of passwords represents excellent protection against the phishing.
Exfiltration of a significant amount of data most commonly occurs with disgruntled employees, employees that are moving to a new company or those that are starting their own business. Why would they choose to start from scratch when they could start with an entire initial database? We can detect such actions and prevent them.
Once an incident happens, you can easily access the actions that preceded it in order to understand how and why it happened. Understanding the context of an incident is as important as prevention itself, since it allows you to make the necessary changes and keep it from happening again.
