Healthcare Network Security


Multiple Network Security and HIPAA Compliance

A healthcare company needed to insure that its computers, databases and networks were safe from intruders and viruses. Healthcare companies are now bound by the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA). This law requires healthcare companies to ensure the privacy and security of their customers' information and data.

What the client wanted:

Our client wanted a full Network Security Audit to identify their security vulnerabilities and to assist them in achieving HIPAA compliance.

What SD3 did:

SD3 performed a full Security Audit on the client's four geographic offices throughout the U.S. Our consultant was able to perform the entire audit from the client's Chicago headquarters without the need for any travel expense.
Some of the audit activities included:

  • Full internal and external infrastructure intrusion testing & vulnerability analysis
  • Complete Windows OS vulnerability review for all Workstations and Servers
  • Comprehensive review and analysis of all Web and Email Systems
  • Full review of data access rights for all systems
  • Providing Human Resources and the corporate attorney with formal policy recommendations
  • Remote connectivity testing for VPN, wireless and dial-in services
  • Simulated virus attacks

The outcome:

SD3's Security Expert corrected several critical vulnerabilities through the implementation of centrally managed security and process improvements. Our client is now able to focus on their core business needs without worrying about an unwanted intrusion or unnecessary system downtime.

  • Secured Network
  • Increased HIPAA Compliance
  • Decreased Downtime
