More than 700,000 hospitals, emergency medical clinics, dental offices, nursing homes and other health-related entities are required by law to have a specialized IT risk assessment performed to satisfy the requirements of HIPAA - The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
So, too, are an estimated 2 million other companies that do business with these entities, including IT service providers, shredding companies, documents storage companies, attorneys, accountants, collections agencies, and many others. Many of these companies and organizations are not even aware of this legal requirement!
Our Audit Professionals can conduct an audit and produce the official documents that comprise a comprehensive HIPAA IT assessment, including: HIPAA Policy and Procedures, HIPAA Risk Analysis, HIPAA Management Plan, Evidence of HIPAA Compliance and all of the associated supporting documentation that your company needs to obtain or maintain your HIPPA / HITECH compliance.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) - the acceptable latency of data that will not be recovered
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) - the acceptable amount of time to restore the function
The recovery point objective must ensure that the maximum tolerable data loss for each activity is not exceeded. The recovery time objective must ensure that the Maximum Tolerable Period of Disruption (MTPoD) for each activity is not exceeded.
KIT Corp can accomplish this for you by creating a BCM and Disaster Recovery Plan for you or assisting your IT Department in its creation or audit your existing plan. To learn more about our solutions that can positively impact your RPO and RTO, select our BCM Solutions.
We help clients in I.T. by creating an extensive and formal overview of an organization's security systems and processes--The Security Audit: An all-encompassing, in-depth, review of not only physical attributes (networks, firewalls, hardware, etc.) but other areas including policy and standard operating procedures.
To start the process, we conduct a Security Assessment - and with the assessment results, we can recommend steps to remedy the problems within your system.
