HIPAA Compliance Controls

Introduction

The HIPAA Compliance Controls page provides insight to clearly indicate how your account is meeting compliance and security standards specific to HIPAA.

By leveraging the HIPAA standards, security professionals can more easily and consistently ensure that their deployments are following established best practices for compliance.

To access the HIPAA Compliance Controls page, go to the left navigation pane, and choose Security > Secure Configuration > HIPAA.

The HIPAA Compliance Controls page opens. Each control maps to a HIPAA Compliance Control.


Functionality Overview

Each of the HIPAA Compliance Controls page’s controls is mapped out and titled so you can get easily drill down and get more information. CloudCheckr uses its Best Practice Checks as a source of data for each of the controls. When you drill down into a control, you will see which Best Practice Check informs the HIPAA Compliance control, as well as its status (Correctly or Not Correctly Set) and any User comments on the control. You are also given the option to view all of your controls and their details by exporting the entire report to PDF or CSV.
