SAFEGUARD YOUR PHI
With health records of high value to patients and the dark web alike, Protected Health Information (PHI) is at risk for everything from unintentional employee mishandling to cyberattacks. Our HIPAA Privacy Risk Assessment thoroughly assesses your privacy practices to help you comply with HIPAA privacy rules, while elevating your overall security posture.
HIPAA PRIVACY RISK ASSESSMENTS
Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule, healthcare organizations are required to implement appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of Protected Health Information (PHI) and to set limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without an individual’s authorization. The Rule also gives individuals rights over their PHI, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, to direct a covered entity to transmit to a third party an electronic copy of their PHI in an electronic health record, and to request corrections.

BAI Security’s commitment to delivering not just assessments but tangible, strategic recommendations for long-term security enhancement differentiates them as a trusted partner.
The professional experience and technical expertise made the choice an easy one… exceptional results. We are completely satisfied.
There are a lot of service providers out there, but your staff were personable, friendly, knowledgeable and made it very clear they were there to help us get better, not to find as many exceptions as possible.
They go out of their way to be helpful, offering guidance (not a cookie-cutter approach). We chose BAI because of their reputation. We went back because of their people and professionalism, the depth of their technical knowledge, and friendliness.
Far more extensive test than any we have had in the past… The reps are 100% on your project and always available to give you feedback.
BAI Security’s reputation for delivering high-quality assessments and their commitment to staying abreast of evolving security landscapes were key in our decision-making process. The BAI team has been instrumental in providing actionable recommendations, allowing us to strengthen our overall security posture.
Outstanding platform for vulnerability remediation. Everyone I talked to from sales folks to technical experts were all great to work with and very knowledgeable.
The experience was great, and I felt that BAI had my back. The techs were great to work with and helped me resolve security issues. They were working with me to correct issues rather than just pointing out what was wrong.
There are many players in this field. I contacted some of my industry peers and asked who they used. BAI came in at the top.
I love how in the final deliverables recommendations are provided. I’ve seen other solutions (and past vendors) who simply tell you what’s wrong without any help to remediate.
The dedicated engineer that learns our environment is huge! Also, the reporting is as high level or granular as you need it to be.
We have worked with BAI Security for 5+ years. They are professional, knowledgeable and personable. The technicians have a great understanding of our complex infrastructure
Price was right, service was excellent, and the final deliverables were outstanding. Great team.
