Protect sensitive medical data and meet strict compliance mandates
Whether it’s a large hospital, an urgent care facility, or a doctor, chiropractor, or dentist with a single practice, any organization maintaining or transmitting electronic protected health information (ePHI), is required to be HIPAA compliant. The best way to achieve and maintain HIPAA compliance is continuous, ongoing monitoring and adherence to the HIPAA guidelines for security, privacy, and breach notification.

Whether they are caused by theft, unauthorized access, human error or external attacks, Medical and Healthcare security incidents are on the rise – and very costly. The healthcare industry is most at-risk for cyber attacks. Just last year there were 100 million cyber breaches in the healthcare sector, with an average cost of $6.45 million.
Like credit card numbers, medical data is a high-value commodity on the black market. Cybercriminals recognize the value of patient data, such as stolen health insurance numbers, to acquire medications and services.
It is no longer a case of whether a data breach will occur, but when will it happen – and how much it will cost.
Across industries, healthcare organizations face the highest risk of data theft and have the highest costs associated with a data breach.
A single breach can cost millions. Mitigation costs, fines, lost trust and confidence, and court-ordered compensation can quickly overwhelm a practice. Not to mention that multiple offenses can lead to loss of license and prison.
Don’t let a security breach devastate your organization. Illumin8 can help assess the threats your organization faces (both internal and external), and provide you with a clear roadmap to fix the gaps, elevate your security posture, and confidently meet HIPPA compliance regulations.

Achieving HIPPA Compliance
Illumin8 offers a full suite of consulting and managed services to address your information security and HIPPA compliance needs.
Navigating regulatory compliance can be very challenging for organizations. Our security consultants quickly identify which regulations, frameworks, and best practices are likely to apply to your organization, and provide a roadmap to develop and implement HIPPA compliance programs and policies.
Security policies should be well documented, reviewed, and maintained on a regular basis. Our experienced security consultants provide everything your organization needs for rapid development and implementation of information security policies to meet strict HIPPA compliance mandates.
Most breaches can be traced back to human error. Research has shown that for cyber training to be effective it needs to be ongoing. Our security consultants develop training programs based upon your organization’s security policies, train employees, then simulate phishing programs to test the effectiveness of your security policies.
To maintain HIPPA compliance you must discover, manage, and track your organization’s hardware and software. Our managed inventory control makes it easier to recognize an unauthorized device or software on your network, alerting you to threats so you can protect sensitive medical data.
Proactively address security and HIPPA compliance risks as they arise with continuous, ongoing vulnerability management. Our managed vulnerability solutions continuously scan your network for vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit, and notify you of them before they become an issue.
System logs from your firewalls, servers and workstations are security and HIPPA compliance relevant. Our log management system stores and correlates your data, which can be used to as forensic analysis to investigate a potential data breach.
Instead of using multiple products for your compliance, our managed SIEM meets all of your essential HIPPA compliance requirements. We provide you with the customized reports you need for HIPPA compliance, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
