HIPAA Privacy Program Assessment

Identify and remediate compliance gaps. Reduce enforcement risks by verifying compliance.

Overview

Our HIPAA Privacy Program Assessment is designed to evaluate how your organization implemented the HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notification Rules by providing a complete and thorough gap analysis and recommendations for remediation.

This service is a thorough, in-depth review of your privacy program’s current state; identification of any gaps in compliance or best practices; and recommendations based on regulatory requirements for remediation and improvement.

Upon completion of the assessment, we provide a comprehensive report of findings and present it to key stakeholders in an educational workshop. Ultimately, the goal of this assessment is to help you prioritize privacy program efforts to effectively reduce risks and address compliance requirements.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.
