Log Management Compliance - HIPAA - Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) outlines relevant technical and non-technical security standards to ensure individuals’ ePHI, “electronic protected health information”. Compliance with HIPPA requires information systems to be monitored using SIEM, Security Information and Event Management. The SIEM is a tool that guarantees immediate notification and analysis of conditions influencing the reliability of an organization’s ePHI data through actionable reports and forensic investigation.

HIPAA requires the collection, management, and analysis of log data. LogIT consist of heterogeneous devices, systems, and applications that are all reporting this log data 24/7. Digital Edge will organize this information and derive meaning from it while meeting the additional requirements of investigating and reporting on log data render manual processes or home-grown remedies insufficient and costly.

In case of an incident report, our case management will secure a collection of forensic evidence with access restrictions to set up who can view specific types of information.
