BooleBox now supports HIPAA compliance06/25/2018 by
HIPAA is the acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act that was passed by U.S. Congress in 1996. The HIPAA Privacy regulations require health care providers and organizations, as well as their business associates, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared.
Healthcare organizations can use BooleBox to share, store or edit files containing protected health information without violating HIPAA Rules. Patients personal data, medical record numbers, biometric identifiers - all sensitive information will always stay secure and safe from prying eyes thanks to BooleBox.
In order to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of PHI, it is important to configure a BooleBox account correctly. To grant maximum protection to data access, users should apply advanced security settings when sharing single files, entire folders or even messages with extreme granularity. Furthermore, they should classify data in a controlled way, responding to business needs and respecting company security policies, and to secure authentication procedures.
It is also fundamental to configure users settings and supervise corporate accounts – in this way admins will have full control over company corporate accounts. In the same way, thanks to BooleBox it will be possible to monitor all users activities: it is indeed fundamental to regularly review audit logs to keep an eye out for any unusual activity. This will maintain sensitive information totally secure and ensure compliance with requirements.
