DriveSavers achieves HIPAA complianceOctober 11, 2011 | Industry News Release
DriveSavers Data Recovery, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, announced today that the company has achieved compliance with all forty-two data security standards outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Performed by Trusted Consulting Compliance (TrustCC), the evaluation of compliance was designed to measure the controls over DriveSavers data recovery processes as they are performed for customers with damaged media containing electronic protected health information (PHI). Damaged media received from healthcare providers may contain sensitive electronic data such as patient records and medical transcripts for doctors, hospitals and/or clinics. DriveSavers is the only certified HIPAA compliant data recovery service provider in the industry that meets all forty-two data security standards.
“Healthcare providers spend a significant amount of time vetting their prospective vendors to ensure that they adhere to HIPAA security compliance guidelines. Our healthcare customers can feel confident that our data recovery services meet HIPAA data security standards as well as other important security standards and protocols.”
Healthcare providers, financial institutions and government agencies are required to meet the most stringent data security guidelines by law and now require third-party data recovery vendors, who handle their data, to meet these same guidelines. DriveSavers is leading the data recovery market by investing in technology, research, equipment, new facilities and training so that it meets those rigorous security demands.
“With an increase in the amount of sensitive patient data that is being stored electronically, plus the strict regulations for securing PHI data, it’s no surprise that data breach is a major concern for CIOs in healthcare,” said Michael Hall, CISO at DriveSavers Data Recovery. “Healthcare providers spend a significant amount of time vetting their prospective vendors to ensure that they adhere to HIPAA security compliance guidelines. Our healthcare customers can feel confident that our data recovery services meet HIPAA data security standards as well as other important security standards and protocols.”
In addition to being HIPAA compliant, DriveSavers is the only data recovery provider in the industry to show proof that it undergoes company-wide SAS 70 Type II audit reports on an annual basis. SAS 70 Type II is the corporate industry’s standard for an overall control structure. The company also adheres to US Government security protocols, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Data Security Rule (GLBA), the Data-At-Rest mandate (DAR) and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
