Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or HIPAA is quickly becoming the most sought after safety option for the health care industry. The crucial and confidential patient information needs special network security that goes beyond antivirus and firewall protection. Since network security affects every computer connected to the specific network, it is one part of your data security that you should put most emphasis on.
A good network service provider provides an airtight HIPAA compliant network security that ensures all round protection from both outside and inside threat.
Firewall – every network security starts with a strong firewall. A network service provider provides a firewall that makes it impossible to conduct data theft by any outsider.
Antivirus – with so many transactions happening round the clock, it is needless to say that any medical database needs strong antivirus. And with such a huge database, you need a HIPAA compliant antivirus system.
Internal desktop security services – medical facilities, hospitals, nursing homes and care centres have many desktops being operated by different employees. To ensure that each computer is protected individually, and from any inside data theft, there will be an internal desktop security system.
Network security products – A network service provider will provide various network security products that will ensure smooth and safe operations. HIPAA will eliminate any risk of data loss or theft along with maximising the work potential.
These four security points will give you complete data protection from any kind of threat. It will also maximise your work potential by avoiding network hacks and failures. But above all, it will protect extremely critical patient information.
