Atomic OSSEC Facilitates HIPAA and Wide Compliance - Atomicorp - Unified Security Built on OSSEC

Atomic OSSEC Facilitates HIPAA and Wide Compliance

(Healthcare information is under attack in the form of cyber theft and fraud. Many organizations don’t have sufficient personnel or budget to track and control where private data is going and how it’s being used. This can bring HIPAA violations and fines. Atomicorp provides a HIPAA compliance solution through strong audit control mechanisms.)

The Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) governs the use of personally identifiable healthcare data, i.e., private patient information scattered across end user devices, cloud apps, servers, and other forms. Protecting this data and staying compliant with HIPAA and other international and domestic privacy laws is tricky. Healthcare information is heavily targeted by hackers. How do you make sure this information doesn’t fall or flow into the wrong hands causing business harm plus penalties?

Atomic OSSEC for HIPAA Audit Control 

A crucial HIPAA compliance question, protecting data outside the more controllable physical world, is: 

“Does your practice have audit control mechanisms that can monitor, record and/or examine information system activity?”

Atomicorp offers the audit control functionality you need to address this question with confidence. It provides strong audit control mechanisms through automatic logging, advanced security control rules on data use, and compliance reporting and analysis tools. This functionality addresses §164.312(b), the section of the HIPAA Security Rule that governs auditing and monitoring. 

Don’t let private patient data fall off your radar and fall into the wrong hands. Use Atomicorp automatic detection and active response measures versatilely across environments such as data centers, servers, VMs, and hosted containers to ward off attacks and HIPAA violations. 

Atomic OSSEC FIM for Compliance: PCI-DSS, NIST, FISMA, et al.

Atomicorp provides strong file integrity monitoring (FIM), which is ideal for compliance in general. PCI-DSS, NIST, and JSIG frameworks and regulations require file integrity monitoring explicitly via prescriptively defined requirements; HIPAA, GDPR, and others call for FIM as part of their performance requirements. 

What does FIM do? It validates the integrity of operating system and application software by verifying a current file’s state against an established baseline. It protects your data and data systems. If you protect the data it is far less likely to be compromised and you won’t be saddled with embarrassing and crippling data theft, injunctions, and fines reaching the several millions of dollars. Atomicorp FIM is essential toward making sure breaches and unauthorized changes are detected in your environment and toward generating artifacts to respond to regulatory requirements. Use Atomic OSSEC FIM to comply with a wide variety of standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, Hitrust, NIST 800-53, FISMA, NIST 800-171, NERC CIP, CIS, and GDPR.
