HIPAA Compliance

By Emalee Firestein

What is HIPAA compliance and how can Kandji help me achieve it?

What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule defines a series of administrative, technical, and physical security procedures for covered entities to use in order to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronically-protected health information.

Do I need a Business Associates Agreement with Kandji?

Kandji does not store or manage PHI/PII (Personally Identifiable Information/Protected Health Information). Therefore, we do not qualify as a covered entity for HIPAA compliance. Additionally, a BAA (Business Associates Agreement) is not needed.

Can Kandji help my organization become HIPAA compliant?

Yes! As a CIS partner, Kandji can help you employ CIS benchmarks to securely configure workstations used to manage electronic protected health information and be a major component of your HIPAA compliance plan.
