HIPAA Security Rule

The HIPAA Security Rule is a component of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that specifically addresses the security of electronic protected health information (ePHI). The Security Rule establishes standards and requirements for covered entities, such as healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses, as well as their business associates, to protect ePHI from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The Security Rule outlines various safeguards that must be implemented, including administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, and technical safeguards.
