The Importance of Secure Data & Patient Privacy

NOFTEK specializes in Insurance Companies, Dentist Offices, Medical Offices and other HIPPA-dependent small businesses. As a business owner, you know how important it is to keep your client’s data secure. In fact, you could be legally penalized if you don’t…

Across the pond, the The European Union (EU) has already enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which applies to all organizations controlling or processing personal data of EU data subjects and holds companies responsible for implementing data protection processes.

NOFTEK keeps you in Compliance.

While GDPR is an EU regulation, it has global reach and any organization holding information on an EU subject and that company can be penalized for loss or misuse of that personal data.

Non-Compliance of corporate governance over these issues which also include HIPAA, PCI etc. can result in significant fines of up to 20M Euros or 4% of annual turnover (total revenue). And that’s not just in the EU.

 

What Is HIPPA?

Regulation designed to protect personal information and data collected and stored in medical records. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act established a national standard to be used in all doctors’ offices, hospitals and other businesses where personal medical information is stored. In addition to protecting personal medical information, HIPPA also give patients the right to view their medical records and request changes if the data is incorrect.

Content Governance

Look at what’s happening with content governance here in the U.S… In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica debacle faced by Facebook this year, the U.S. is seriously considering a “Privacy Bill of Rights” that maybe passed through Congress shortly. This would require companies to report every time they collect personal information, how it was being used and every time that information was re-used and for what purpose. U.S. companies wanting to retain personal data will, at the very least, need to have secure servers but will also need to provide users with consent to the collection of their data, honest communication about how their data is processed and immediate right to erasure.

NOFTEK follows these security and compliance trends closely so your data is always up to date with the latest legal requirements. With NOFTEK, you are always in compliance. Now and in the future.
