HIPAA is not optional and non-compliance with the appropriate data protection regulations can result in hefty fines. Start your compliance journey with our answers to these frequent questions.  

It stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It is a 1996 US federal law that established national standards for safeguarding protected health information (PHI) or electronic protected health information (ePHI) from being disclosed without patient consent.  

HIPAA specifies several requirements that healthcare providers must meet to be compliant.  


  • Privacy rule - sets standards for the use and disclosure of PHI by covered entities 
  • Security rule - covers the administrative safeguards, physical infrastructure, and cybersecurity required to protect electronic health records 
  • Enforcement rule - covers compliance, penalties, and legal procedures for HIPAA violations 
  • Breach notification rule - mandates healthcare organizations to inform patients if their medical records have been exposed in a data breach 
  • Omnibus rule - requires business associates to also be HIPAA compliant and healthcare organizations to execute business associate agreements with their vendors 

If your organization creates, maintains, or transmits protected health information, you are expected to comply with HIPAA and provide meaningful privacy and security measures to protect your patients’ data. 

OneTrust GRC and Security Assurance provides the guidance you need to strengthen protection of patient data, achieve HIPAA compliance faster, and avoid violations over time.
