1 WHITEPAPER Complying with HIPAA LogRhythm and HIPAA Compliance

2 Complying With HIPAA The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) to ensure that personal information stored, accessed, or processed adheres to a set of guidelines or security rules. These rules outline security measures that should be implemented to adequately secure all electronic protected health information (EPHI). The Secretary of Health and Human Services enforces this law. Non-compliance can lead to civil monetary penalties and public distrust. The collection, management, and analysis of log data is integral to meeting many HIPAA requirements. The use of LogRhythm directly meets some requirements and decreases the cost of complying with others. IT environments consist of heterogeneous devices, systems, and applications all reporting log data. Millions of individual log entries can be generated daily if not hourly. The task of organizing this information can be overwhelming in itself. The additional requirements of analyzing and reporting on log data render manual processes or homegrown remedies inadequate and costly. and notifies relevant personnel. With the click of a mouse, LogRhythm s out-of-the box HIPAA reporting packages ensure you meet your reporting requirements. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication provides guidance for meeting HIPAA Standards. The remainder of this paper lists the applicable standards LogRhythm can help address. For each standard, an explanation of how LogRhythm supports compliance is provided. Learn how LogRhythm s comprehensive log management and analysis solution can help your organization meet or exceed HIPAA regulatory requirements. LogRhythm can help. Log collection, archive, and recovery is fully automated across the entire IT infrastructure. LogRhythm automatically performs the first level of log analysis. Log data is categorized, identified, and normalized for easy analysis and reporting. LogRhythm s powerful alerting capability automatically identifies the most critical issues LogRhythm Report Center Screenshot PAGE 1

3 LogRhythm Compliance Support for HIPAA The table below outlines each HIPAA Standard and associated Security Rule that LogRhythm helps to address. The Compliance Requirements were taken directly from NIST Special Publication titled An Introductory Resource Guide for Implementing the HIPAA Security Rule. These columns briefly describe the key activities and descriptions that are necessary to reach compliance. The column describes the capabilities LogRhythm provides that help a company achieve compliance. In some cases LogRhythm can be used to directly meet the compliance requirement, in others, LogRhythm helps verify the compliance requirement is met and/or reduces the cost of meeting the requirement. Administrative Safeguards 4.1 Security Management Process (a)(1) HIPAA Standard: Implement policies and procedures to prevent, detect, contain, and correct security violations. 7.
