HIPAA Penetration Testing

With a focus on safeguarding your healthcare data, our Security team of experts utilizes advanced techniques and tools to perform comprehensive HIPAA pentesting services. We understand the significance of protecting individuals’ electronic personal health information created, received, used, or maintained. 

HIPAA Compliance Requirements

The healthcare industry must follow HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Compliance Requirements to protect the privacy and security of patient information. These requirements cover administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for electronic patient health information (ePHI), breach notification requirements, and workforce training and management. Organizations that handle patient data must comply with HIPAA regulations and implement security controls to prevent unauthorized access, theft, or data loss. Failure to comply with HIPAA can lead to penalties and harm an organization’s reputation.


Key compliance requirements for HIPPA

  1. Implement Administrative Safeguards
  2. Conduct Regular Risk Assessments
  3. Implement Physical Safeguards
  4. Implement Technical Safeguards

Our Approach

Conducting a comprehensive risk analysis
The first step in a HIPAA pentest is to identify all systems, applications, and processes that handle PHI. A thorough risk analysis should be conducted to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks associated with each system.
Testing access controls
Access controls are critical to ensure that only authorized individuals can access PHI. A HIPAA pentest should include testing of access controls, such as password policies, multi-factor authentication, and user permissions.
Testing network security
Network security is crucial in protecting PHI from unauthorized access. A HIPAA pentest should include testing of firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and other network security controls.
Testing application security
Applications that handle PHI are also subject to HIPAA regulations. A HIPAA pentest should include testing of web applications, mobile applications, and other software used to handle PHI.
Testing physical security
Physical security is often overlooked in a HIPAA pentest. However, physical access to PHI can be just as damaging as cyberattacks. A HIPAA pentest should include testing of physical security controls, such as access to server rooms and backup storage facilities.
Compliance Validation
RBT Security testing approach includes validation of HIPAA compliance requirements, such as access controls, risk assessments, and incident response plans, to ensure that the covered entity is meeting its regulatory obligations.
Executive-level Reporting
RBT Security provides executive-level reporting that includes a summary of findings, recommended remediation strategies, and risk prioritization, to help covered entities make informed decisions about their cybersecurity posture.
