I have a firewall and anti-virus software, so why do I need your services?
Part of being secure and HIPAA compliant is insuring that you make every effort to secure and protect your client or patient data. The industry standard for network security and data protection is vulnerability scanning and penetration testing. If your firewall, network and operating systems are not configured properly or not updated, your system is very vulnerable.
In the event of a data breach, your network will be closely examined to see if you had vulnerabilities that should have been removed. In the event that you and your IT company is found to be negligent, you could face massive penalties from your state and/or Health and Human Service the Office for Civil Rights.
Black Talon Security specializes in network security and HIPAA compliance and that's all we do. We have found that most IT companies are good at setting up networks, but have limited knowledge when it comes to robust network security. You really need to have a 3rd party, such as Black Talon Security, validate and manage your security.
