Secure and Simple HIPAA Compliance

Secure Access Controls for HIPAA Compliance

FileCloud ensures HIPAA compliance through several secure features and policies like data encryption (both in transit and at rest), audit trail, security policies and controls, restricted employee access to customer data files and much more. FileCloud helps protect sensitive patient information and maintain HIPAA compliance.

HIPAA Compliance Auditing with SIEM Integration

FileCloud provides the capability to integrate with the Enterprise Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). System administrators can monitor the file cloud storage with alerts capability and the relevant audits on details of who, what, how, and when. The alerts and the audits can be centrally managed for ease of use for the administrators.

Single Sign-On (SSO) and Two Factor Authentication

FileCloud offers HIPAA compliance with SSO and two-step authentication. You can enable SSO with SAML 2.0. It provides the ability to configure multiple IDPs and SSO for desktop and mobile clients. Another step for authentication for HIPAA compliance, MFA, can also achieve cloud security for the files. MFA helps prevent fraudulent transactions, unauthorized access, and account hijacking.

How to achieve HIPAA compliance in the cloud with FileCloud cloud storage?

What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law. This law requires the creation of national standards to protect patients’ health information which is sensitive in nature. Also, this prohibits the information from being disclosed without the patient’s knowledge or consent.

What are the cloud storage compliancy requirements of HIPAA?

There are several requirements for HIPAA compliance for a cloud storage. Electronic PHI (Protected Health Information) should be kept in a cloud storage with proper audit controls and access controls. Also, it mentions that cloud storage should provide administrative safeguards, such as data backups and security incident procedures. A HIPAA-compliant cloud storage should have SSO and two-step authentication.

How FileCloud provide HIPAA compliance?

FileCloud provides user authentication in a few different ways. Single Sign-On (SSO) and MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) for authentication, as well as RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) for authorization.

Single Sign-On can be enabled using multiple IDPs configured with FileCloud. MFA can enable more authentication protection where it will allow you to add additional steps of authentication for your file cloud.

Regarding authorization, your users can be categorized into groups, and the configured roles can be assigned to users. Group policies can also be defined by the administrator of the file cloud for additional security. Further to RBAC, folder-level permission granularity can also be achieved with FileCloud. These are coming under the administrative features of the FileCloud.

• Auditing

FileCloud provides SIEM (Enterprise Security Information and Event Management) integration for alerts and audits. The alerts will be generated with the capability of checking what has happened in the system with a broader view of who did what and when information, with proper audit logs in place. Audit logs can be enabled for auditing purposes, and audit reports can be generated as per the need for the total security of a secure file-sharing system. Granular controls of notifications are also provided where if someone does something unauthorized with files saved in the FileCloud, notifications can be triggered on those actions.

• Data Backup

To prevent data loss, FileCloud offers a “Backup Server” capability. This will back up your entire FileCloud installation, including all the files, user data, and all the settings in the FileCloud. This feature offers full or incremental backups and also scheduled backups. In case of any failure, you can restore the entire FileCloud installation. Also, the specialty of this backup method is that you are not vendor locked into FileCloud. You can export the files to a standard file structure. Data backup is crucial in HIPAA-compliant cloud storage as losing patient data is not an option.

DICOM Medical Images

FileCloud Supports viewing DICOM medication images such as x-rays and scans directly in the browser.

Full Audit Logs

Audit logs can be enabled for auditing purposes, and audit reports can be generated as per the need for the total security of a secure file-sharing system.
