February 17, 2021

There are different compliance standards for different industries. We have done the research for you so now you can look at how Secure Network can keep you up-to date on our industries’ compliance standards.

Healthcare Industry

HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is the standard for sensitive patient data protection. Anytime when you go to a medical office for the first time you sign the HIPAA waiver that says who the hospital can contact regarding your condition. Secure Network can come in to make sure that your facility is complying with all of the HIPAA standards.

Cybersecurity Compliance

Cybersecurity is when you protect your network and controls to prevent the sensitive data about your patients from being release. Secure Network can help you protect your secure information by pen testing, device testing and intrusion testing. With all of our tests you will be able to see if your important data is secure or if anyone can access your clients medical history.

NY-SHIELD 

The Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security was implemented by New York’s Governor with the idea to “develop, implement, and maintain reasonable safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of the private information.” Private information is someones name and social security number so hospitals have a lot of that particular sensitive information. Secure Network can come in and create a security system that complies with the NY-SHIELD act.
