Access Controls

Healthcare breaches accounted for 43.8 percent of all data breaches in the U.S. in 2013, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center. Don’t let data breaches happen to you.

You need to consider administrative, technical, and physical access controls, each with their own requirements. Let’s start with the administrative part—that means limiting access to your data to include only those who absolutely need it. ClearDATA will help you properly govern how data is accessed, provide frequent and thorough security awareness training, make sure you hire the right people, and enforce sanctions policies.
