HIPPA Law vs. Cyber Security

The health insurance portability and accountability act of 1996. The purpose of HIPPA Law is to make it easier for people to keep health insurance protected and confidentiality and security of healthcare information. HIPPA security rule establishes a national set of security standards for the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. Cybersecurity is referred to as information security the word “cyber” is just the overall act of the web surfing. It is the body of technologies. Cybersecurity focuses on protecting computer, networks, programs and data (which is information) from attacks, or unauthorized access and or change. So therefore it protects the data and the integrity of computing assets that connects to an organization network. It is designed to defend those assets against all threats. HIPPA Law and Cyber Security tie in together, they both are protecting confidential information.
“Employees make decisions every day that negatively affects their business’s security…As a result, we have known for a while that, to protect organizations, employees need online street smarts. However, the problem is that some in the industry treat employee awareness as a training concern or one-time activity. It is not. It is an ongoing cultural problem.”

Is Cyber Security Necessary?

We need cyber security for the simple fact that we do not want our personal information to be hacked. By having the security, it is preventing you from the attacks, because attacks evolve everyday as the attackers become more inventive. Hospitals, government, military, financial institutions, and other businesses collect confidential information on computers and transmit the data across networks to other devices. With having cyber security you are insuring to protect the sensitive business and personal information.
