Compliance & Regulations


What it is

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) has been put in place to protect the privacy and security of sensitive personal health information (PHI). The HITECH Act (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) further mandates the security of electronic health records (EHR) and imposes penalties for organizations that fail to do so.

Cisco Cloudlock Can Help

Complying with HIPAA and HITECH requires the deployment of security controls, including security management processes, information access management, security incident procedures, as well as contingency and resolution plans.

Cisco Cloudlock is the cloud app security solution that helps organizations achieve healthcare regulations compliance by:

  • Reporting on access controls and assessing data exfiltration risk.
  • Auditing and reporting all changes in access permissions to regulated data stored in public cloud applications.
  • Supporting access controls to limit user rights based on a need-to-know basis.
  • Identifying users with excessive rights to protect sensitive or regulated data from unauthorized activities.

Cloudlock enables us to achieve compliance for the data we store in Google Apps. With Cloudlock we can safely enjoy the collaboration features of Google Apps while still complying with HIPAA, SOX, and PCI.
