1 Presentation for HIPAA Summit X Baltimore, MD April 7, 2005 The HIPAA Security Rule: Theory and Practice Sam Jenkins Privacy Officer TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) Dan Steinberg Senior Consultant Booz Allen Hamilton HEALTH AFFAIRS TRICARE Management Activity
2 1 Theory of the HIPAA Security Rule: Presentation Objectives Discuss the flexibility and adaptability of the HIPAA Security Rule Review HIPAA covered entities need for further guidance Describe the role of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in providing security guidance to the federal government Provide an overview of NIST Special Publication , An Introductory Resource Guide for Implementing the HIPAA Security Rule Describe covered entities need to apply guidance judiciously
3 2 The HIPAA Security Rule was intended to provide covered entities with flexibility and adaptability Section 1173(d) of the Act required HHS to take into account the needs and capabilities of small and rural health providers HHS relied on basic concepts in drafting the rule that included: Scalability, so that it could be effectively implemented by covered entities of all types and sizes Not be linked to any specific technologies, allowing covered entities to make use of future technology advancements. 2,300 comments received reinforced that entities affected by the Security Rule are so varied in terms of installed technology, size, resources, and relative risk that it would be impossible to dictate a specific solution or set of solutions that would be useable by all covered entities HHS declined to certify software, develop compliance checklists, or certify programs or tools Advised covered entities to identify white papers, tools, and recommended best practices, but cautioned that HHS does not rate or endorse any such guidelines and/or modelsand the value of [their] content must be determined by the user.
4 3 In response to a FAQ, HHS stated that no standard policy, procedure, or methodology can guarantee compliance for all covered entities FAQ 3230: How will we know if our organization and our systems are compliant with the HIPAA Security Rule s requirements? Answer: Compliance is different for each organization and no single strategy will serve all covered entities. Compliance is not a one-time goal, it must be maintained. Compliance with the evaluation standard at (a)(8) will allow covered entities to maintain compliance. By performing a periodic technical and nontechnical evaluation a covered entity will be able to address initial standards implementation and future environmental or operational changes affecting the security of electronic PHI.
5 4 The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is charged with developing security standards and guidelines for federal agencies Under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), NIST is charged with developing standards and guidelines, including minimum requirements, for providing adequate information security for all agency operations and assets apart from national security systems NIST is cited four times in the preamble to the HIPAA Security Rule as an authority and potential source for more information on the security management process, evaluation, training programs, and auditing NIST s Computer Security Division (CSD) produces the Special Publication 800 series on information technology security topics of general interest to the computer security community.
6 5 NIST s challenge was to assist federal agencies with understanding the HIPAA Security Rule without creating new requirements Drafting of Special Publication was guided throughout development by our stated intent: To identify activities relevant to each standard and implementation specification of the HIPAA Security Rule, and provide direction to more extensive guidance. Special Publication states multiple times that this guide is offered as an aid, but does not create new requirements Development further governed by the goals of of writing in an accessible, clear style and defining all technical terms Written for NIST s audience of federal agencies pursuant to its mandate, but private and commercial entities may voluntarily consult it and adapt it for their purposes Not subject to copyright, although attribution to NIST is appreciated.
7 6 Special Publication discussed HIPAA within a federal framework of other information security requirements and NIST publications FISMA directs heads of federal agencies and their chief information officers (CIOs) to: Ensure that each agency has an information security program in place Ensure trained personnel are assigned to manage and support the program Fully integrate security into their business processes Prepare security plans and certification and accreditation for all agency systems. NIST developed a suite of publications relevant to addressing these FISMA requirements Appendix ( E of current draft) identifies opportunities for aligning FISMA and HIPAA activities in order to maximize efficiency Emphasis throughout document on availability of other NIST publications which address certain security issues in greater detail.
8 7 Each administrative, technical, and physical standard was addressed in an educational module Components of each module: Citation for the standard A reprinting of the exact text of the standard Introductory reference Key activities Description (of key activities) Sample Questions Supplemental references Examples Explanation
9 8 Each administrative, technical, and physical standard was addressed in an educational module (continued) omponents of each module: Citation for the standard A reprinting of the exact text of the standard Introductory reference Key activities Description (of key activities) Sample Questions Supplemental references Examples Explanation
10 9 Each module begins with an Introductory Reference, and most also include Secondary References at the end of the module table Each Introductory Reference is the NIST Special Publication that will be the most informative to a covered entity on the security issue raised by that particular specification In some cases, only part of the Introductory Reference will be relevant to that particular standard; users will need to review the document to identify the relevant portion Supplemental References may also be helpful; some are written on more general topics than the standard and will provide a context for the standard and/or a background on information security A review of all references identified for each standard is provided in Appendix D of Special Publication
11 10 The Key Activities suggest actions that are usually associated with the security function or functions for each HIPAA Security Rule standard In final draft, Key Activities will include all implementation specifications of each standard, and note whether each is required or addressable Other Key Activities are not specifically discussed or required by the HIPAA Security Rule NOT meant to expand upon the intent of the Security Rule, but are usually included in a robust security process Some are required of federal entities under other federal laws, regulations, or procedures. Each entity will need to identify what activities are necessary and appropriate in its environment, implement those activities, and document them.
12 11 The Description is a description of possible actions to take to address each Key Activity Includes an expanded explanation of the Key Activity Includes types of activities an organization may pursue in addressing a specific security function Abbreviated explanations designed to help get an organization started in addressing the HIPAA Security Rule The NIST publications identified as Introductory References for the HIPAA Security Rule can be consulted for more detailed information about the security topic.
13 12 Sample Questions are those that covered entities may ask themselves while determining whether Key Activities have been adequately considered or completed List of Sample Questions is not exhaustive, but merely representative Affirmative answers to these questions do not imply that an organization is meeting all of the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule Negative answers to these questions should prompt the covered entity to consider whether it needs to take further action in order to comply with the standards Many organizations with existing information security infrastructure already in place will have considered most of the Sample Questions Sample Questions should be tailored to fit the unique circumstances of each entity.
14 13 The Examples describe the efforts of two hypothetical federal agencies that are also HIPAA covered entities The Examples describe how two hypothetical covered entities has chosen to address standards and implementation specifications of the HIPAA Security Rule Should be read in context of the overview of each entity s environmental and information systems characteristics The Examples are representative of what actions and issues may arise, but are not comprehensive descriptions of the actions an organization must perform The actual activities necessary to implement the standard requirement for any given entity may vary substantially depending on organization mission, size, and scope Each Example is followed by an Explanation detailing how the covered entity approached the HIPAA standard, containing references and citations to provisions of the HIPAA Security Rule.
15 14 NIST Special Publication was intended to be a helpful, educational document Explanations of terms and concepts used in the rule Builds a bridge to other NIST documents that will be helpful in understanding the significance of each standard Not a checklist, a methodology or an approach, but a resource Individual compliance will require an understanding of security and alignment with the entity's: Risk analysis Risk mitigation strategy Security measures already in place Cost of implementation of particular security measures Size, complexity, capabilities Technical infrastructure, hardware, and software capabilities Probability and criticality of potential risks to electronic protected health information Other factors.
