Security Management Process

The Final Rule requires that a covered entity must, in accordance with §164.308(a)(1)(ii)(D) “Implement procedures to regularly review records of information system activity, such as audit logs, access reports, and security incident tracking reports” and must implement a Security Management Process §164.308(a)(1)(i) which may include “ Acquir[ing] IT Systems and Services…to adequately protect information”.

Implementing a Risk Management Program

A comprehensive Risk Management Program will monitor unlawful, unauthorized, or inappropriate information system activity.  Identification of attempts to manipulate system configuration and data is essential to preventing damage to Information Systems. Monitoring is usually done by an IT system administrator. As your IT Business Associate, we can provide your practice with the services of an IT System Administrator to comply with the monitoring requirement.
