HIPAA Security Compliance Playbook

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) governs disclosure by medical providers in the United States. It is the foremost data compliance regulation for the healthcare and life sciences industry, levying fines ranging from $100 to $1.5 million. Needless to say, it’s imperative that healthcare companies incorporate HIPAA security compliance into their data security strategy.

The regulators implementing HIPAA set forth two main strategies to de-identify, and thereby legally use and disclose, protected data. The first is what’s known as the “Safe Harbor” method, in which covered entities must remove 18 identifiers. The second is an “expert determination” that data is de-identified.

To take the guesswork out of HIPAA security compliance, this HIPAA Compliance Playbook highlights how to perform two techniques critical for de-identification:

  • Masking Columns
  • Differential Privacy
