How will a HIPAA Security Risk Assessment help my business?

  • Identify areas of non-compliance with HIPAA and other rules & regulations
  • Identify vulnerabilities that could lead to loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability
  • Identify areas of security weaknesses
  • Create a map of your companies flow of protected health information
  • Create a mitigation plan to assure you are taking proper precautions on your findings

Willful Negligence

Not having a risk assessment is considered “Willful Neglect” of the HIPAA and Omnibus Rules and places your practice at risk for HIPAA violations, fines, and the loss of patient trust. Whether yours is a small, medium, or large organization, it is imperative to follow all HIPAA rules and regulations.

The risk analysis report, risk management plan, and other compliance documents JDL can provide will help your organization meet these stringent compliance standards fast and without impeding day-to-day operations.

JDL Tech conducted a Network Security Assessment, prioritized their findings, and offered remediation recommendations for each finding. We were impressed with the comprehensiveness and professionalism of the report and process, which led us to sign an agreement to have JDL manage our IT services. I am extremely pleased with the work, professionalism and exceptional service received from JDL—and, more importantly, from all of their employees. The choice to switch to JDL Technologies has proven to be the best IT decision for ARCA!
