The HIPAA Security Rule specifically focuses on safeguarding electronic protected health information (ePHI.)  For covered entities, this requires addressing administrative, physical and technical procedures to protect the security of the data.  By conducting these risk assessments, healthcare providers can identify potential weaknesses in their security policies, processes and systems.

To date, more than 30 million people have had their protected health information compromised in a HIPAA privacy or security breach, according to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
