A lack of manpower and a dearth of resources are often major obstacles for companies striving to achieve and maintain HIPAA and PCI DSS compliance. Tracking progress on activities required for quarterly reviews, year-end audits, and monthly assessments can stretch resource-constrained organizations, leading to unintended data breaches and subsequent fines. In order to help organizations effectively manage their compliance-related activities, HOSTING has partnered with IVIS (www.ivis.com) to introduce the HOSTING HIPAA Dashboard and the HOSTING PCI DSS Dashboard.
With its robust, user-friendly interface, organizations operating under strict compliance regulations can leverage HOSTING’s compliance dashboards to compile an “electronic book of evidence” that details their IT infrastructure as well as relevant logging and tracking activities. Easy to implement and use, the dashboards enable organizations to assign and track compliance responsibilities, increasing accountability among teams.
“The HOSTING HIPAA and PCI DSS Dashboards are a natural extension of our comprehensive suite of compliance solutions,” notes Bill Santos, President of HOSTING Advanced Solutions. “HOSTING’s relationship with IVIS further enables us to assist organizations in streamlining their compliance activities, reducing their risk and lowering their costs.”
The HOSTING HIPAA Dashboard
Since 2009, the records of more than 31.7 million people have been exposed. As a result, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has levied severe fines against healthcare organizations who have failed to meet HIPAA compliance requirements. The HOSTING HIPAA Dashboard provides real-time tracking of an organization’s compliance activities. Complete document management controls combined with automated email alerts and notifications provide a single pane of glass into an organization’s compliance posture. This allows organizations to proactively address any vulnerability within their environment that could lead to a potential breach.
The HOSTING PCI DSS Dashboard
Many technology pundits have coined 2014 as “the year of the hack” – and with good reason. The list of high-profile victims of data breaches is a virtual “who’s who” of industry leaders including JP Morgan Chase, Target, Neiman Marcus and Home Depot. In most cases, these companies were not in full compliance with the Payment Card Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) at the time of the breach.
The HOSTING PCI DSS Compliance Dashboard is a simple, secure and cost-effective means for organizations to implement, monitor and manage compliance activities across multiple departments. Organizations can move away from traditional paper documentation and manual processes to create a comprehensive, electronic audit trail. Automated alerts and email notifications allow them to stay ahead of the compliance curve while proactively addressing any incidents that could put their compliance standing at risk.
The HOSTING compliance dashboards are the latest enhancement to our suite of compliant cloud solutions. Want to ensure your organization maintains a positive compliance posture? Contact the HOSTING team of compliance experts for more information or to request a solution demo.
