What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal law that created national standards to protect sensitive patient health information. The specific measures required are detailed in the HIPAA security rule which states that covered entities must put controls into place to identify and protect  PHI.

Why you need cloud-native DLP for HIPAA

Data protection is required to stay HIPAA compliant. This means organizations must ensure that all communications protect PHI (Security and Privacy Rules) and DLP helps achieve this by providing:

Administrative safeguards through end-user security awareness and training that is highly contextualized for HIPAA data sharing. In addition, Nightfall supports the Audit Control standard by maintaining logging of the creation or dissemination of PHI records.

Technical safeguards by detecting and preventing cleartext PI / PHI from leaving the environment, as well as automated corrective actions that lock down sharing or disallow download and print of PHI by covered entities.

Pain-free audit readiness and compliance reporting

Scan and assess the risk across all your cloud applications to ensure you stay HIPAA compliant and avoid potential fines or data breaches.

Report on compliance in a consolidated view

Reduce the burden of completing annual audits with continuous data monitoring, and move your organization from a point-in-time to a continuous security and compliance model.
