The rising number of data breaches and storage practices have opened the demands for heightened security that is often beyond the specifications of your IT infrastructure. With Legal Workspace’s HIPAA Compliant Edition (HCE), law firms as business associates can comply with the mandated security regulations of HIPAA. These regulations require that entities and their business associates have appropriate safeguards for protected health information (PHI). These safeguard responsibilities are broken down into three categories administrative, physical and technical.
Law Technology Today an ABA publication recently published an article by our CEO explaning what HIPAA compliance means for lawyers as business associates.
“As a business associate, law firms need to physically secure their offices, networks and data. This involves controlling facilities and electronic information to limit access to those who have the necessary authorizations. Law firms must also secure the area where computers are kept, as well as the computers themselves.”
