Compliance regulations and guidelines of HIPAA & HITECH require health care organization to conduct regular Security Risk Assessments in order to identify reasonably foreseeable risks that – if left unchecked – could lead to unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration, or destruction of confidential information.

A Security Risk Assessment determines what type of controls are required to protect assets and resources (physical locations, networks/servers, staff, etc.) from threats – allowing your organization to reduce exposure and maintain an acceptable “risk tolerance”.

The Security Risk Assessment process evaluates the likelihood and potential damage of identified threats, measures the individual risk level of each asset as they relate to Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA), and then gauges the effectiveness of existing controls to limit the organization’s exposure such risk. Results help the organization identify which assets are most critical, provide a basis for prioritization and recommend a course for remediation.
