If your business is in New York City or Long Island, you can find HIPAA compliant IT support at AE Technology Group.
HIPAA Compliant IT Support And Its Value To Your Business
One example of why HIPAA and the HITECH Act are so important is the Anthem security breach of 2015. At the time, hackers stole private information of close to 80 million customers and former customers. This information excluded credit card information and health information but included names, phone numbers, home addresses, and Social Security numbers.
According to an article from Modern Healthcare,
“The FBI is still investigating the attack, and so far has found no evidence that Anthem members’ data have been sold, shared or used fraudulently… Anthem provided two years of credit monitoring to those who were affected.”
If this can happen to a company like Anthem, the second largest healthcare provider in North America, it is all the more important to make sure you are doing your due diligence in hiring a HIPAA compliant IT firm to help with your IT needs.
