Gulf Breeze, Florida, Sept. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading cloud cybersecurity and productivity provider AppRiver, today announced a complimentary whitepaper to help healthcare professionals better understand and maintain HIPAA compliance.
The whitepaper, titled “Healthcare Security: Understanding HIPAA Compliance ,” provides actionable steps for healthcare practices to improve HIPAA compliance, prevent email-based malware attacks and provide greater privacy for patients.
Compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act – or HIPAA - often keeps doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals up at night. However, there is a great deal of misunderstanding and confusion on the topic. The impacts of HIPAA violations can be devastating. Those who fail to adhere to HIPAA could face significant fines – in some cases ranging into the millions of dollars, as well as face jail time. Violators, who are required to report their non-compliance to those affected as well as the media, could suffer reputation damage.
AppRiver’s whitepaper provides key insights and best practices for healthcare professionals to better understand HIPAA guidelines, and to keep their practices compliant. It’s a valuable asset for all healthcare professionals, and particularly for physicians who establish their own practices and do not have a HIPAA expert on staff.
“The threat landscape always is changing for HIPAA-compliant electronic data transmission, and unsecured email services, untrained staff, and lax security can put confidential medical data at risk,” said Jeff Willard, a strategic account executive at AppRiver. “This whitepaper provides insight and recommendations for healthcare practices to improve email security measures, decrease the risk of social engineering-related attacks and increase regulatory compliance.”
The complimentary whitepaper is available at http://411.appriver.com/appriver-hipaa-compliance-whitepaper.
