Security Risk Analysis Overview

PacketWatch has the compliance and security expertise to meet your organization's needs. Our advisory team will help ensure your organization is compliant with the provisions and requirements of the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPPA).

Our team takes the complexity of HIPAA requirements and breaks them into digestible pieces to help organizations remain compliant and help you prevent negative financial, operational, and reputational impacts from HIPAA violations.

Our experienced team will guide you through a detailed security risk analysis (SRA), meeting the federal requirements outlined in the Security Rule. The assessment identifies and ensures the implementation of proper safeguards to remain compliant with the standards and implementation specifications in the Security, Privacy, and Breach Notification Rules found in NIST 800-66.

The results of the SRA will identify how well the organization is complying with administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the requirements.

PacketWatch SRA Process and Timeline

  • Identify assets that create, receive, maintain, or transmit Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI)
  • Facilitate workshops and interviews with designated individuals within your organization to understand your company's current practices to identify risks and vulnerabilities
  • Analyze collected data and materials to create an actionable roadmap for your organization to track progress in addressing gaps during the assessment

PacketWatch R2AM Platform

We conduct our guided analysis utilizing PacketWatch's proprietary Regulatory Risk Assessment Management (R2AM) platform to collect information and documentation through open discussions with individuals who are designated as the organization's subject matter experts (SMEs).

After completion of the SRA, we provide access to the R2AM platform for 12 months track your progress, establish milestones, consolidate documentation, provide evidence, and help mature your HIPAA compliance program.

Clients have access to their compliance results, may add documentation as it is developed and set reminders for upcoming milestones and deadlines.
