What is HIPAA Risk Management?
HIPAA Risk Management is an ongoing process to determine the value of assets and the corresponding exposure to threats and vulnerabilities. Information produced during the Risk Assessment will be utilized to determine and manage countermeasures critical for assurance of ePHI resources.
The two principle components of the HIPAA Risk Management process are:
Both must be carried out on a consistent basis to ensure the adequacy and continued improvement of information security programs.
Subsequent HIPAA Risk Assessments should be conducted when changes in business strategies, staff, information technology, information sensitivity, threats, legal liabilities or other significant factors that affect information systems occur. Environments vary greatly and many factors need to be taken into consideration. One size does not fit all. Businesses should do what’s commonly defined as “reasonable and appropriate” for their particular situation and/or location.
It is imperative to maintain detailed documentation of all HIPAA Risk Assessments, HIPAA Risk Management, Risk Mitigation and audits to prove due diligence and to convey a “culture of compliance”. It is required to maintain this documentation for a minimum of six years.
