Success Story: How Greenville Health System Ensures HIPAA Compliance

Presented by

Chris Schmidt - Manager, Information Security - Greenville Health System

About this talk

How gaining asset intelligence helped ensure HIPAA compliance for Greenville Health System As a large, U.S.-based healthcare organization, Greenville Health System (GHS) needed to adhere to the regulatory standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). GHS’ employees and devices are geographically dispersed, making it incredibly challenging to apply and maintain the necessary security measures to protect their devices and sensitive data. Absolute’s team performed an Endpoint Risk Assessment to find and identify every device that belonged to Greenville and benchmark internal controls against HIPAA requirements and security best practices. Once the security gaps were identified, they then developed a remediation action plan to improve workflows and ensure security requirements. With the Absolute Platform deployed, GHS is confident that their devices and the sensitive data that they contain are always protected. Absolute’s firmware-embedded technology provides continuous visibility and the ability to rapidly remediate at-risk devices. The IT team now has current and historical evidence that encryption is in place on their devices to ensure that they are compliant with HIPAA. Key Results: • Visibility and protection of data • Automated remediation • Proof of HIPAA compliance • Reduced risk of breach
