Why Compliance is Only the Beginning
When most organizations think about HIPAA audits, they envision cost and inconvenience. Often, these audits are considered just another task that needs to be completed on a long list of IT priorities, or another box to be checked by the organization's compliance officer.
It doesn't have to be this way-in fact, given the relentless deluge of headlines about prolific data breaches in recent years, it shouldn't be this way.
Some smaller organizations with low risk profiles may decide that a simple check-box audit sufficiently meets their business requirements. However, for hospitals and many other organizations that handle patient data, compliance is only half the story. Having a security strategy is just as important, and HIPAA audits provide a great opportunity to assess your organization's risk and readiness.
