Violations of these standards result in major penalties and fines. Learn more about how you can protect your clients’ information and your business with HIPAA compliance assessments in Newport Beach.
The security of clients’ private information and data and the use and management of that information is of the utmost importance to both the clients and the companies that hold the information. Such information and data can include medical records, personal identifying information, financial information (such as salary and bank account data), and tax information, is the type of data sought by identity thieves and other cybercriminals. It is also the type of information that can fetch companies big payouts if sold illegally and without authorization. This is this type of activity that prompted the federal government to enact the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA. HIPAA places strict requirements on businesses and other organizations to securely hold this information.
