What is HIPAA?
The purpose of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 is to protect the privacy of patients, ensure patient data is appropriately secured, and to enforce the reporting of any data breaches in a timely manner.
Fines for HIPAA violations can become very steep. Healthcare organizations and partner companies must use new solutions for authenticating onto systems and securing data. One of the biggest HIPAA challenges in healthcare is how to secure hospital computers from the many patients and visitors that roam the floors? Doctors and nurses may forget to lock the computer when they walk away, leaving a serious vulnerability that could lead to HIPAA violations and fines.
