HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

As we worked with Industry leading CISOs, Compliance Advisors and IT Directors, we learned that most want to get the same information but the levels of information are different. We are taking a series of improvements to that end.

  1. Scorecard at Compliance Category levels: Pivot the dashboard towards Compliance categories. We heard you! Please find the below details.
  2. More Coverage: HIPAA Dashboard are aligned to controls, more Azure Resource Providers, more more..We heard you! Please find the below details.
  3. Drill down to Azure Resource Providers and specific Azure Resources: Although the policy titles and recommendations state the resource providers, you are telling us to add explicit filters for Azure Resources Providers. Watch this space for more on this



We heard it from the CISOs and the IT Directors that although the previous dashboard, which was pivoted towards the specific resource categories like Storage, Networking, Compute etc, was helpful for the DevOps teams. We heard you ! Now the benchmarks deliver inline with the policy mapping to reflect a more accurate reflection of the PCI DSS requirements.
