Pivot Group Now Offers HIPAA Compliance Services

ATLANTA, March 1, 2003 /PRNewswire/ -- The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was enacted as a part of a congressional healthcare reform.

The requirements of HIPAA are Administrative Procedures, Physical Safeguards, and Technical Security Services to guard data integrity, confidentiality, and availability. Also there must be Security Processes and Technology to guard against unauthorized access to transmitted data.

Pivot Group offers the HIPAA compliance services and additional security services necessary for a successful security program. “ Our customers have been waiting along time to understand what it means to be HIPAA compliant.
